Through this track we are keen to explore a whole range of topics/areas/subjects which fall under Cinema and/or Interactive Media.
Some of the broad areas for consideration (under which the topics can come under) include
Business of Cinema-be it anything to do with marketing of movies, distribution/release strategy,raising funds-be it for pre-production/production/post production, alternate revenue models,alternate ways of reaching target audience etc.

Interactive Media & convergence with Entertainment- synergy between interactive media (like video sharing platforms-Youtube/Vimeo/Dailymotion etc) with cinema/music/T.V etc
Miscellaneous-anything connected to Cinema and/or Interactive Media which does not fall under points 1, 2 &3.categories for example-film criticism,future of interactive media,adaptation of books and plays into films etc., censorship in cinema, how to make you app stand out amidst the clutter,how can podcasting serve as means of promoting a brand/movie etc.
