The Evolution of Storytelling in Hollywood featuring Katherine Brodsky

Venue: Lónyay-Hatvany Villa - 1. Csónak str., 1015 Budapest

A deep dive into the evolution of the entertainment industry, both in terms of freedom of expression and technological advancements, and what this might mean for the future. Does increasing political correctness mean that certain major award-winning work we admire from the days past would not get made today? How are artists being limited? What efforts are being made from outside the system to challenge the status quo? There’s no doubt that certain technological innovations are having an impact on storytelling, too.

How will AI transform the industry? Will some actors get to “live” forever? What are the ethical implications?  As technology evolves, it makes it more accessible for those outside of the Hollywood bubble to produce their independent work with more impressive results than ever—what effect will it have on storytelling? Will more independents find success outside of Hollywood?  Will we still be shooting movies on-location in 20 years?

Join writer Katherine Brodsky for a closer look at the future of storytelling. The event will be moderated by Dr. David Dusenbury, Senior Fellow at the Danube Institute. Cecilia Hazai, Hungarian entrepreneur with a long history in television, film and content creation will also be joining the conversation.

Brodsky has served as a correspondent for the legendary Hollywood trade magazine Variety for over a decade and has also contributed to publications such as The Washington PostWIREDThe GuardianEsquireNewsweekMashable, New York Magazine’s VultureEntertainment Weekly, and many others.
