FoE5: Cities and the Future of Entertainment (MIT Communications Forum)

Held Nov. 10, 2011 at MIT.

As a prologue to the CMS conference on the future of entertainment, this Forum will focus on the emergence of powerful new production cultures in such cities as Mumbai, Shanghai, and Rio de Janeiro. What do these developments portend for the international flow of media content? How does the nature of these cities shape the entertainment industries they are fostering? At the same time, new means of media production and circulation now permit individuals to produce content from suburban or rural areas. How do these apparently opposed trends co-exist?  What is their likely impact on audiences and on the international media landscape?

Speakers

Speakers include Sergio Sa Leitao, president of RioFilme; Parmesh Shahani, a doctoral student in the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania who previously worked for Mahindra & Mahindra, one of India's largest business conglomerates; Ernest James Wilson III, Chair in Communication and dean of the Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism at the University of Southern California; and Mauricio Mota, a co-founder and Chief Storytelling Officer of the Alchemists Transmedia Storytelling Co.  Shahani is a 2005 graduate of MIT Comparative Media Studies.
