Watching Movies or Being Watched?

Mathew Englander just pointed me to an interesting comment on the Industrial Brand blog about the writer's experience at a screening at the Vancouver International Film Festival. The writer is more than a little perturbed by the aggressive, anti-piracy measures being taken at such screenings, which include pat-downs, scanning by a metal detector and -- la piece de resistance -- videotaping of the entire audience. He was told this is the new normal for film festival entries by the big studios. Read the blog entry here: Industrial Brand Creative Watching Movies or Being Watched?.
