The Hollywood Reporter‘s video lounge returns to the Village at the Lift at Sundance this season, with a new dimension: a series of Google+ Hangouts featuring top filmmakers and stars in live video discussions with a select group of THR readers.
Google+ Hangouts allow anyone with a Google+ profile to engage in a live, face-to-face video conversation with up to 10 other people. The Hangouts are a central part of The Hollywood Reporter Sundance Video Diaries, which also features original video reporting from Sundance.
“THR Video Diaries harnesses Google+’s cutting-edge live video technology, Google+ Hangouts, to bring our readers into direct contact with the leading talent at a major international film festival,” said THR editorial director Janice Min. “This is truly a first in entertainment coverage, and we look forward to continuing the THR Festival Diaries at leading film festivals throughout the year.”
The THR Sundance Hangouts kick off on 11:30 a.m. ET Friday, Jan. 18, with Academy Award-winning filmmaker Freida Lee Mock and Anita Hill discussing Anita, a documentary about attorney Hill’s infamous sexual harassment accusations against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who at the time was a nominee for the high court. THR.com readers can be part of the Hangout by going to THR.com/Hangouts and filling out the participant form.
