Watch the Sync Up conference live - streaming in real-time video and audio at WWOZ.org, starting at 10 a.m. CST every day of the conference.
The Sync Up Conference, held during Jazz Fest at NOMA in City Park, is New Orleans’ top forum for entertainment industry leaders, covering music, film and digital media from the perspective of independent artists. Sync Up is free but requires registration.
Sync Up 2013 boasts another stellar cast of entertainment industry leaders. It also includes a second annual showcase for the Louisiana independent film industry, Sync Up Cinema, produced in partnership with the New Orleans Video Access Center and the New Orleans Film Society.
Sync Up Cinema admission is also free but no advance registration is needed. The screenings and panel discussions take place the Monday-Wednesday between Jazz Fest weekends (April 29-May 1).
We're looking forward to a pair of “teaser” screenings: Bayou Maharajah, Lily Keber’s documentary about pianist James Booker (Tuesday, April 30) and A Taste of Heaven, Leo Sacks’ documentary about gospel singer Raymond Myles, and a conversation with Sacks and Davell Crawford (Wednesday, May 1).
