NEW YORK — Just prior to next year’s Oscars, Yahoo! Internet Life magazine will host its first Online Film Festival March 22-23 in Los Angeles.
The fest is designed to showcase ways that filmmakers, film Web sites, digital technology companies, major studios and independent companies are using the Internet to present the moving image.
Fest events will take place at local hotels, clubs and theaters.
Participants will include Atom Films, Trimark’s CinemaNow, iFilm and online film poster boys Sam Sokolow and Rob Robbins Lobl. Sokolow and Lobl’s film “The Definite Maybe,” starring Eric Stoltz, Bob Balaban, Teri Garr, Roy Scheider and Ally Sheedy, was released via the Internet.
