A number of events will surround the release later this month of the documentary SIDE BY SIDE, which explores the digital revolution in filmmaking. Produced by Keanu Reeves and directed by Chris Kenneally, the film explores the complex and divisive conversation currently taking place around the transition from traditional filmmaking to the new digital revolution. Tribeca Film (www.tribecafilm.com) launches a series of events on its website this week, each day releasing a new exclusive clip that are not in the final cute of the film. The clips will offer a daily opportunity for the public to log in with their thoughts and questions. Reeves also serves as the narrator of the film, taking the audience on a tour of the past and the future of filmmaking, featuring impactful interviews with such Hollywood masters such as James Cameron, David Fincher, David Lynch, Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, and Steven Soderbergh. Tribeca Film will release SIDE BY SIDE via on-demand platforms on August 22. The film will also open in select cities theatrically, including Los Angeles (August 17), New York (August 31), Boston (August 23), Seattle (August 31), Chicago (September 15), Tacoma (September 18), San Francisco (October 18) and other cities to be announced.
