The Buzziest Thing at Film Festivals? It Might Just Be TV

“‘We’d been interested in opening the door to showing adventuresome, quality TV for some time,’ said festival producer Janet Pierson. ‘The lines between indie film and TV have been blurring for years, both in terms of filmmakers finding work and creative possibilities in that medium, but also in terms of where the interesting, intelligent eyeballs are going. When I get together with my peers, I find the conversations quickly turn to the likes of The Wire or Breaking Bad.'”

Interesting article about the increasing presence of TV screenings at film festivals like Sundance, Cannes, SXSW and IFFR, indicating the changing perceptions of television as a “serious” medium.
