Produced by Daniel Berube of Noisybrain Productions LLC with Jon Goldman of Thought Balloon Productions, XWhaves is a new component of the Woods Hole Film Festival that offers filmmakers an opportunity to reflect on the impact of new technological developments on the shape and nature of filmmaking. Join members of the new media revolution in an active, open discussion of citizen journalism, personal media, video blogging and the convergence of digital storytelling methods with a new era of novel, inexpensive worldwide distribution and other aspects of the ever-changing landscape of how content gets delivered.

From expensive variable frame rate HD cameras to cell phones that can stream video in the palm of your hand, our ability to capture imagery digitally and to tell digitally constructed and edited stories is becoming easier and more accessible than ever. While the ability to create smaller and simpler tools for digital storytelling has grown in leaps and bounds with the shrinking of chips and the improvement of imaging technology, so too have the possibilities for how these stories get received. Xwhaves highlights and explores this convergence of media and opportunity, and for it's first year poses this question: Where is this digital wave taking us?
