Awaiting guests. #SundanceFilmFestival

Not seeing much snow in the mountains or above Salt Lake City right now. Hopefully that will change as the #SundanceFilmFestival gets underway. For now, I’m on the road to the annual #ArthouseConvergence, the annual gathering of indie cinema owners, operators, distributors and exhibitors.

As I head to Utah this morning for my 25th(!!) Sundance Film Festival, I discovered that I’ve gone too far with Facebook.

I tried to add a colleague and was stopped.

Back in my @indiewire days I accepted friend requests from anyone - anywhere in the world - who was a filmmaker or involved with filmmaking, exhibition, distribution, promotion, festivals, curation etc. It didn’t matter that we’d never met because we shared common interests I was aiming to nurture a community of film people within Facebook’s social network. Creating such a community was the original goal of Indiewire back in the mid 90s.

Today, I have nearly 600 unanswered friend requests from folks who seem quite interesting, many of whom are part of the global film community.

As Facebook alters its algorithm to favor individuals instead of organizations and companies, I’m thinking about how to stay connected. I suppose I need to do a bit of pruning to fit everyone into this space?

Back at Indiewire we tried, but couldn’t sustain, a niche social network for indie folks. We closed it down after we sold the company nearly ten years ago. A decade later I’m thinking about how valuable it could be to have a social network and content hub, not driven by modern media metrics, for indie and alternative minded folks.

How can we connect better, share content and information, and remain connected in the future? Thoughts?
