Ken Feinberg at the Cannes Film Festival

user
                The Cannes International Film Festival has almost nothing in common with the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles and Hollywood, and yet, people tend to treat each other in the same way: every man for himself.

user

Certainly, in the entertainment industry we need to start asking ourselves how such UGC is positioned alongside more expensive and expansive forms such as traditional cinema. At CFC Media Lab, where I have been Di...
