Page One will inspire and remind you that journalism is alive and well in an ever-shifting landscape.
Des Moines, IA (PRWEB) February 08, 2012
CDS Global, in conjunction with Des Moines-based social media consultancy Lava Row, is hosting a networking mixer and screening of Page One: Inside the New York Times on Thursday, Feb. 23, 2012, at Fleur Cinema (4545 Fleur Drive in Des Moines).
Premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and released theatrically the summer of that year, the documentary provides a unique glimpse into the Times' new media fight for survival during the print crisis and how it successfully adapted to the digital age.
Kristin Runyan, chief information officer and vice president of product management at CDS Global, says, "Page One truly hits home with CDS Global as we partner with clients across the media industry to maximize their use of digital technology and help them monetize their content in a new-media world." She adds that co-hosting the screening with Lava Row provides an opportunity to bring together our extremely talented local media and technology professionals. "This is a testament to the expertise and far-reaching influence of technology-driven companies based right here in Des Moines," she says.
Nathan Wright, founder of Lava Row, believes Page One can provide valuable insight to CDS Global and locally based tech companies alike. "I watched Page One a couple of months ago and immediately felt that anyone who works in journalism, new media – or at the intersection of both worlds – must see this film. Page One will inspire and remind you that journalism is alive and well in an ever-shifting landscape," he says.
Networking will be held from 6-6:45 p.m. Runyan and Wright will deliver introductions at 6:45 p.m. and the film will run from 7-8:30 p.m.
Admission is free. You must obtain tickets in advance at PageOneDM.EventBrite.com. The first 50 tickets ordered will include two free drink tickets, a small popcorn and a box of candy.
