The 22nd annual Cine Gear Expo returns to Los Angeles on June 1-4, 2017, with 300 exhibits and dozens of complimentary seminars and panels about multiple aspects of filmmaking. Earlier, the NAB Show opens in Las Vegas.
This year’s NAB Show, April 22-27, 2017, presents itself as the place of convergence of The M.E.T. Effect, where Media, Entertainment and Technology lives and thrives! The show organizers say that The M.E.T. Effect is a cultural phenomenon fueled by hybrid solutions and boundless connectivity that’s changing the very nature of how we live, work and play, and that at the center of it all is NAB Show.
In 2016 Cine Gear Expo did not disappoint the nearly 16,000 attendees from over 60 countries. Panavision and Light Iron unveiled there the new Millennium DXL Camera (“DXL”), calling it a revolutionary breakthrough in image acquisition and workflow. Highlighting the 2016 Special Screenings was an exclusive screening of Woody Allen’s much-anticipated feature, Cafe Society and subsequent interview by Jon Fauer, ASC with the film’s DP, three-time Academy Award-winner Vittorio Storaro ASC, AIC. And much, much more.
This year’s event will feature 300 exhibits, more than in 2016, and dozens of complimentary seminars and panels covering a range of filmmaking insights, techniques, and technology from top filmmakers.
