‘The Sun Dance Kid’ stars at Barcelona bash


The star of The Sting, and dozens of other blockbusters will participate in a keynote interview, which among other topics will explore the potential of mobile – the ‘4th screen’ – as a medium for independent filmmakers to reach new audiences on a global basis.

Ironically, iconoclastic film director David Lynch has made scathing remarks about the futility of trying to watch a film on a mobile phone (Backslap, Mobile News, January 28).

"We are thrilled and honoured to announce this rare keynote appearance by a screen legend," said Bill Gajda, Chief Marketing Officer of the GSMA.

"As a champion of independent artists and their work, and as an advocate of innovation and risk taking in the film world, we can expect some forthright, refreshing and somewhat unexpected insights for the mobile world, especially in terms of opportunities for cinematic quality film on the small screen.”
