AFI Features Special Discussion On The Future of Storytelling

AFIWe had the great opportunity last week to talk to the panelist of the AFI Fest Future of Storytelling.

We had a conversation with panel moderator John Heinsen and panelist Alan Flores about what their views would be for the future of the medium. How will storytelling evolve in the tech future. We also talked to academy award winner Jon Avnet.

Jon Avnet has directed, written, and produced more than 60 motion pictures, television movies, and Broadway plays over the last 30 years, winning most of the major awards: Oscars, Emmys, Tonys, Peabodys, DGA, the Humantis, and the AFI’s Franklin Shaffner Medal. Mr. Avnet was the executive producer of Black Swan, starring Natalie Portman (winner of the Oscar for Best Actress) and directed by Darren Aronofsky. Black Swan received five Oscar nominations in total (including Best Picture) as well as multiple nominations and wins from the PGA, WGA, SAG, BAFTA, AFI, and the Golden Globes. It grossed 326 million dollars theatrical worldwide. In June 2013, Mr. Avnet received an honorary doctorate in communications from the American Film Institute.
