Sweden, 2011 (MIFF 2011, Networked)

Director: David Dworsky, Victor Köhler


"This changes everything. The industry is dead. There has never been a better time to be an artist." - Seth Godin, author of Unleashing the Ideavirus

The digital revolution has created a new democratised culture. Technology now allows art, film, music and literature to be created, distributed, critiqued and consumed by anybody with access to a computer and an internet connection. But does this herald a new era of creativity and self-expression, or will the proliferation of user-generated content drown us in a tidal wave of mediocrity?

Through interviews with a byte-load of artists, digital creators and online journalists - including musicians Hot Chip and Moby, and ex-Facebook president Sean Parker - PressPausePlay examines the possible futures that we may find in the wake of the new digital paradigm.
