'TV is not the enemy of cinema'. Question whether there will be TV shows on future festivals. *
'If you are watching it alone, it's not cinema' The festival reminds us that we are not alone- even if people watch online and communicate.
Community now is universal, not bound to national identity. Festivals are communities and assemble communities. Important role. *
Cinema has as its basis the community of the movie theatre. Whenever we see cinema today it's through the ghost form of its origin. *
The biggest film makers talked about community and also addressed them to a community- the community of the cinema audience. *
Chris Fujiwara talks about the threat of a disappearance of the community if cinema. Artists make films for communities. *
