November is finally here.
For many people in the film industry, that means it is time for the annual Cucalorus Festival (Nov. 8-12).
However, since 2014, Cucalorus has expanded its offerings to include a Connect Conference, which has a business and entrepreneurial focus. As you may have noticed, Cucalorus has dropped film from its name and will focus on film, stage and the Connect component.
This year Tom Looney has jumped onboard as the Connect Executive Board president. Connect will focus on the connected digital economy. It feels as if Connect is more a focal point of the festival this year, rather than an afterthought. Companies and speakers involved will showcase everything from very early-stage startups to industry leaders like Corning.
There are going to be a ton of great sessions, films, and events during Cucalorus.
Some of the sessions that I think will be the highlights of the Connect portion of the conference are:
