On Tuesday, August 25, New Mexico Women in Film will be hosting a panel discussion focusing on creating original content for the Internet. The panel will discuss how the Internet has blossomed into an attractive venue for filmmakers (and storytellers in general) who are seeking new creative opportunities. Panelists will not only look at content creation, but will also discuss how the Internet can serve those who want to reach a larger audience or who seek greater professional recognition. The event will include a screening of a portion of Date Doctor: This Might Sting, a brand new webisode made in New Mexico.

Panelists include Carolyn Handler Miller, New Media writer and author of Digital Storytelling, Second Edition and Date Doctor’s co-producers, writer-director Hannah Macpherson and actress Rebekah Wiggins. The panel will be moderated by Monique Anair, faculty member of the Film and Media Arts program at Santa Fe Community College.
