RealNetworks’ Film.com in the Limelight
RealNetworks, Inc. (Nasdaq: RNWK) has unveiled Film.com at the annual Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.Â The new Film.com features movie trailers, DVD releases, celebrity gossip/news, and other television programming features.Â RealNetworks is also featuring exclusive video footage of Sundance on Film.com.
The original Film.com was created in 1994 by Lucy Mohl, an independent film critic based in Seattle. The new Film.com has contributors from all over the U.S. to give a more opinionated feel to the website.Â An example of one of the writers includes Mary Ann Johanson, a New York-based 10 year veteran of film column publishing.
“We have created the site to be a single, multi-faceted location for all things relating to movies, celebrities and television shows, covering both mainstream popular interests as well as independent and indie films,” stated Elizabeth Coppinger, a VP of Media Software & Services for RealNetworks. “We look forward to providing our site visitors with a fresh and unique approach to movies, television, and entertainment.”
Besides covering the festival, Film.com is also hosting a launch party in Park City as well.Â The party footage will be added on Film.com later.This article was written by Amit Chowdhry. You can follow me at @amitchowdhry or on Google+ at +AmitChowdhry
