ONDI TIMONER, who won the Sundance Festival TWICE, is coming to #BHIF2015. Ms. Timoner is an innovator in her field and has been recognized at all levels. She is Grammy-nominated for a short created about the band Fastball, and directed music videos for The Jonas Brothers, The Vines, DMC, Lucinda Williams, the Dandy Warhols and more. She has directed commercials and shorts for the likes of President Bill Clinton, Honda’s “Dream the Impossible” series, CNN Heroes, State Farm, Ford, and others.
Ondi Timoner will be closing out the film festival with a whole evening to learn about movies, art, technology, and life. The night will begin with a screening of the award-winning “We Live in Public”, a documentary about the effect the internet has on our lives. Next she’ll give a talk on A Total Disruption, her network for innovators, artists and entrepreneurs. ATD is an interactive video portal that seeks to empower and educate the online community, so they can harness the democratizing power of the Internet to make their visions real.
Finally she will screen AMANDA F***ING PALMER ON THE ROCKS about musician Amanda Palmer as she hits the stage at Red Rocks Amphitheater, while delving into the journey that followed her record-breaking $1.2 Mil crowd-funded Kickstarter campaign, in which Palmer (formerly of the Dresden Dolls) masterfully uses technology to create direct and meaningful relationships with her fans, while redefining the role of the artist in our society and the rules of engagement between artist and audience.
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to engage with one of today’s most prolific and influential filmmakers Ondi Timoner.
