A quick reminder for those of you who are based in San Francisco. There will be a free screening of Catfish for all readers of AllFacebook today at 7 PM at the Metreon. If you are around and have a chance to make it, I couldn’t recommend the movie more highly. It’s really a fun film and best of all, the filmmakers behind this movie will be answering questions during a panel immediately following the screening.
Last night I had the opportunity to attend a screening of the soon-to-be-released movie, “Catfish”. It was an insightful look at social networks from the human perspective, told through the story of a guy and a family that he meets through Facebook. It was both touching, entertaining, and pretty much every other human emotion all in one. Rather than being like the high-budget and sensationalized Facebook movie that will hit theaters later this year, Catfish illustrates not only just how human social networks really are, but also shows how film production has become significantly more accessible.
