Streaming, Internet TV, VOD, multimedia, multiplatform, digital media and mobile is no doubt the future of the entertainment business.  The immediate future will see the further development and growth of Internet Television, iPads, iPhones and the huge paradigm shift taking place in the film and television business. At the same time a new evolution of "film" festivals is now evolving with our Digital Media Festival.  The word "film" is becoming obsolete, may sound a little radical, but "The Times They Are A-Changin'"   As seen in Keanu Reeves new movie "Side by Side" we see inside the paradigm shift we are seeing now

evolve in business of entertainment in the digital age.
