There’s a Goethe quote that Tiffany Shlain has had framed on her desk since she was a little girl:
“Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
When Tiffany Shlain thinks of her favorite quote from naturalist John Muir, she thinks of the internet: “When you tug at a single thing in the universe, you find it’s attached to everything else.”
The Emmy-nominated filmmaker, speaker, and Webby Awards founder has received over 70 awards and distinctions for her films and work, including being named by Newsweek as “one of the women shaping the 21st Century.” Shlain’s films encourage us all to think about where we’re headed in our increasingly connected world. Like future On the Block Radio guest Douglas Rushkoff, she explores how technology is shaping us in new, and often unexpected, ways.
A couple of years back, we highlighted a number of documentary filmmakers to follow on Twitter, but given that we are living in what seems to be the heyday of nonfiction filmmaking, we felt it was high time for an updated list. It’s an eclectic and impressive group responsible for some of our favorite documentaries, including “The Crash Reel,” “The Act of Killing” and the “Paradise Lost” series.
WHEN IT COMES TO EMPOWERING WOMEN, Internet pioneer and flmmaker Tiffany Shlain says that technology will “give them the tools to do whatever they want to do, whatever they dream of doing.” It’s strange that some people are still taken by surprise when girls express interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). But a percentage of our population still believes that applied science and technology should be, and have historically been male-centric felds. When in fact, women pioneered many of the ideas and technologies around which entire industries exist today.
Tiffany Shlain, filmmaker, on why we need more time to develop our inner selves.
As a tribute to the upcoming Character Day(link is external) which promotes the science of character strengths around the world, I’m sharing 10 recent research studies on VIA character strengths(link is external). Since the science of character strengths has exploded in the last decade and a half, we have gained plenty of new knowledge about these core positive qualities in human beings.
On September 18, 2015, the world will join Emmy-nominated filmmakerTiffany Shlain for Character Day- a day of thousands of events around the globe where people will simultaneously premiere short powerful and entertaining films, dive into resources from scientists, educators and media experts, and join an online Google Hangout exploring how to live meaningful, successful and purposeful lives in today’s 24/7 world. This event marks one of the dynamic and intricate ways Tiffany continues to capture and captivate her audience with meaningful observations, guidance, and conversations about how life in the technical world can be alive, innovative, purposeful, and grateful.
“Our technology has exceeded our humanity,” Albert Einstein is said to have lamented.
But filmmaker Tiffany Shlain — who utilizes an online, collaborative process and distribution method she dubs “cloud filmmaking” — says it’s possible that technology, used correctly, can enhance our humanity.
We’ve come a long way, baby. The Internet has become an infinitely more exciting place since The Webby Awards started back in 1997. It is now a place where short films can be used to spark global conversations.
Have you ever wondered if you could scientifically become more of a mensch? Or do you want to be featured in a film by a renowned Internet innovator? Either way, Tiffany Shlain has you covered.
The award-winning Bay Area filmmaker — who is also known for founding the Webby Awards and the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences — is making a Jewish companion film to her short “The Science of Character,” which delves into practical and scientific ways that we can all improve our character traits.
San Francisco filmmaker Tiffany Shlain is so creative, so driven and so cutting-edge — Newsweek named her “one of the women shaping the 21st century” — that if she weren’t also such a warm and engaging person, she would make my head explode. And that scene would probably make it into one of her films, hopefully in animated rather than live-action format.
Tiffany Shlain knows a thing or two about our wired lives. Her AOL Originals series “The Future Starts Here”, which “explores what it means to be human in our increasingly connected world”, was nominated for a 2014 News and Documentary Emmy Award and is currently in the middle of its second season. She’s also the creator of the Webby Awards.
Discover Where 21st-Century Humanity Stands in Series ‘The Future Starts Here’
“The Future Starts Here,” an online series with eight five-minute episodes, is packed with rapidly delivered information and kaleidoscopic animation. It explores ways humans can train their minds to attain social freedom and earthly awareness by using the powers of technology and media instead of being controlled by them. As the average human attention span keeps on getting shorter, “The Future Starts Here” presents itself like a red pill: realistic, therapeutic and easy to swallow.
Who are we? How do we define ourselves? In the past this was something that on the surface appeared to be set in stone, but as the world has grown smaller our knowledge and understanding of who we really are has grown exponentially.
Tiffany’s producer and co-writer Sawyer Steele happens to be transgender. In this episode he joins Tiffany to share his transition story, as well as insights into where a shift toward a cultural acceptance of trans identities is coming from — the past, present, and potential future of trans.
Unplugging her devices for 24 hours on the weekend has “had a profound effect on my happiness,” says Webby Awards founder Tiffany Shlain.
We all know and feel that science and technology are transforming how we work, love, and play. Our lives are being affected inside and out: how our brain works, how we communicate, connect and create, how we parent and politic, how we learn and heal and die, our lifestyle and culture. There are techno-utopians who think this is the be-all end-all and techno-dystopians who think this is simply the end. And then there are the wise explorers and explicators of the present who encourage us to think hopefully and responsibly about where we are headed.
In this video, filmmaker and founder of the Webby Awards, Tiffany Shlain, talks about her experiences with the U.S. State Department from the time she was a student ambassador in the Soviet Union to her more recent experiences with the American Film Showcase and the Virtual Cloud Filmmaking Salon doing crowd filmmaking to “foster understanding and tolerance around the world.”
Hailed by Newsweek as one of the “women shaping the 21st century,” singled out by NPR on their list of “best commencement speeches, ever,” and hot off her recent Emmy-nomination, Tiffany Shlain is a local filmmaker, founder of The Webby Awards, and author who we really want to be friends with.

Technology guru, author, and father of the term “virtual communities” Howard Rheingold and filmmaker Tiffany Shlain, who co-founded the Webby Awards and the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, are Internet pioneers in their own right. But they have one important thing in common: They ask provocative questions.
Last year, AOL debuted series from such stars asSarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Ritchie. In 2014, it’s adding more talent to that roster with new shows from James Franco, Steve Buscemi and Zoe Saldana. The media company announced Tuesday a slate of 16 star-studded original shows scheduled to debut on the AOL On Network.
Four of the 16 shows are returning as second-season re-commissions of some of the 15 shows AOL produced in its 2013 slate – iJustine’s Hardwired 2.0, Tiffany Shlain’s The Future Starts Here, Sarah Jessica Parker’s city.ballet and Nicole Richie’s #CandidlyNicole.
AOL has ordered 12 new web series produced by a diverse group of A-list Hollywood talent, including James Franco, Steve Buscemi and Ellen DeGeneres. AOL unveiled its new slate of shows Tuesday at a presentation for advertisers in New York. In addition to the 12 new shows, it picked up four series for new seasons, including Tiffany Shlain’s “The Future Is Here” and “city.ballet,” executive produced by “Sex in the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker.
“We are extremely proud to be delivering a slate of original programming that is reaching audiences on a global scale,” said Charles Gabriel, global SVP of video sales. “GroupM’s recognition of the value of this programming for their client portfolio in Canada is an exciting moment in media.”
Four of the 16 shows are returning as second-season re-commissions of some of the 15 shows AOL produced in its 2013 slate – iJustine’s Hardwired 2.0, Tiffany Shlain’s The Future Starts Here, Sarah Jessica Parker’s city.ballet and Nicole Richie’s #CandidlyNicole.
The innovative film maker Tiffany Shlain isn’t a great fan of selfies. They are mostly two-dimensional, she told me at a FutureCast salon at the AT&T Foundry in Palo Alto. Rather than making us seem more authentic, Shlain says, they make us appear as if we are posing. But as a self-styled “cloud” filmmaker, she is producing films which invite people to film themselves and then be featured in her work.
AOL.com is getting a new look today. It’s not a dramatic change, but it brings one big addition to the homepage, a carousel of videos from AOL (which owns TechCrunch) and content partners like Condé Nast Entertainment, ESPN, E!, HSN, WWE, and The Wall Street Journal.
AOL renews Tiffany Shlain’s “The Future Starts Here,” Three Other Series for Second Season: “The Future Starts Here” follows filmmaker and Webby Awards winner Tiffany Shlain on a journey exploring what it means to be human in our increasingly connected world. The second season of “The Future Starts Here” will premiere in fall 2014. AOL also renewed “#CandidlyNicole”, starring Nicole Richie; the Sarah Jessica Parker-produced reality series “city.ballet.;” and Justine Ezarik’s tech series “Hardwired 2.0.” In their first seasons, these four AOL series combined received more than 75 million views.
The company said it renewed ad deals for three of the returning shows with their first-season sponsors: Citi for “city.ballet,” a look at the life of New York City Ballet dancers, and Verizon for tech-themed shows “Hardwired” and “The Future Starts Here.” AOL is still seeking an advertiser for its most popular show, “#CandidlyNicole,” a short-form series reality based on Richie’s Twitter musings. VH1 is picking up a long-form version of “#CandidlyNicole”; on AOL, season two will feature original content separate from the VH1 series.
Great news for #Candidly Nicole, Hardwired, The Future Starts Here and City.Ballet fans: You’ll be able to see more of these shows online this fall. AOL announced the renewal of the four Web series this morning. The shows collectively received 75 million views last season. They also did well on other platforms and on social media.

Prize winning filmmakerTiffany Shlain producer of the ‘Let it Ripple: Mobile Films for Global Change’ series, has reportedly been the recipient of moral as well as financial support from the Bezos Family Foundation on the release of her latest short film entitled ‘The Science of Character.’
You won’t see this superhero mom in a cape and spandex tights, but her signature fedora and camera in hand, are just as recognizable. Award-winning filmmaker and co-founder of the Webby Awards, Tiffany Shlain, has taken the technology world by storm. Having been honored by Newsweek as one of the “Women Shaping the 21st Century,” it’s no surprise that Shlain was also invited to advise former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton on the Internet and technology. Now Shlain has taken the ever-evolving discussion of technology on step further as she explores what it means to be human in the 21st Century in the clever and witty AOL original series, The Future Starts Here. We were able to catch up with Shlain to discuss the new series and how she juggles it all.
Back in 1987, when most teenagers weren’t thinking about the Internet and the massive changes it would bring about just a few years later, Tiffany Shlain co-authored a proposal called “The United Nations Intelligence Communication Software,” It was about how “computers are going to help solve world peace,” she states. “It was very optimistic, young and naive. But it came from a hopeful place.” Just age 17 at the time, she was already thinking about the impact computers and digital communication would have on the billions of people inhabiting the planet.
Among the experts who contributed to this project were some of the most prominent Internet analysts of our generation. Here we highlight the predictions of some of the people most deeply involved in shaping our digital present.
Filmmaker Tiffany Shlain is not only a friend of Paste, she’s also the director of one of our favorite documentaries ever at Sundance, 2011’s Connected. Before she began her career as a filmmaker, she created and ran the Webby awards. She’s also the daughter of the late Leonard Shlain, one of the most profound and provocative recent writers on the mind and art. She’s recently been pushing her work into some areas suggested by all of these links, and she recently sat down with us to tell us about it.
“The Mamalode Starter Series is an exciting opportunity for us to share some of the amazing people we get to meet with our readers. Starting something takes enormous amounts of work, faith, help and community. Every week we will share with you another story of starting. So community of Mamalode, read up, get inspired and check out these wonder-folk.”
“I was personally captivated by her knowledge and talent to collaborate the influences of films with the connection of our human technology.”
Once a week, Tiffany Shlain and her family take a break from electronic devices. She calls it a “Technology Shabbat.” Modeled after the Jewish day of rest, the idea is that Shlain and her family turn off computers, mobile phones and TVs, so they can focus on being present.
AOL’s commitment to Shlain’s work is encouraging. They are, she told me, the new studio. And Shlain – with her ability to squeeze big ideas into short form video – represents the future of documentary filmmaking. As the founder of the Webby Awards, Shlain imported Hollywood to Silicon Valley. But in her current role as a video chronicler of digital culture, Shlain is exporting both Silicon Valley’s message and its medium back to the Hollywood studios.
In the past few years, the digital detox–a break for a fixed amount of time from cell phones, laptops, and all the other electronics that hog our brain capacity–has become trendy. There are digital detox summer camps, evening parties, and pricey retreats. But shelling out $400 for a weekend of disconnecting with other tech addicts is a bit extreme. Instead, why not try just taking a 24-hour break from electronics once a week?
It was a dream to have the world premiere of my first feature documentary at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. The film was Connected, and one of the ideas I explored at the climax of the story was what I called “The Participatory Revolution,” the potential of so many people around the world having cameras in their hands at all times, connected to the Internet. So after the premiere, my team and I had an idea that we call “Cloud Filmmaking,” where we’d make a film together with all those people around the world. Over the last three years, we’ve released four of these “Cloud Films,” all putting the idea of the Participatory Revolution into action.
Tiffany Shlain, award-winning filmmaker, speaker, and founder of The Webby Awards, introduces us to her husband, Ken Goldberg, a professor of robotics, to dive into the past, present and future of robots and why it is that humans are so fascinated with the most “human” of our technologies.
I met Tiffany Shlain, acclaimed filmmaker, founder of The Webby Awards and constant pusher of boundaries, on a breezy morning in SoHo in New York City. She looked stylish and authentic in her black and sunny yellow-striped poncho and hat. While we talked over hot cappuccino in the lounge of the Crosby hotel, she was fully present and attentive to our conversation despite the long line of press waiting to find out more about her new project, an AOL original series The Future Starts Here.
It comes as no surprise that the talented Tiffany Shlain has, in just three weeks, garnered nearly 5 million views for her latest foray into filmmaking. Founder of The Webby Awards, co-founder of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, forward thinker, voracious writer, sought after speaker, wife and mother of two, this 43-year-old visionary is apt to have people imagining she never slows down—but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Ken Goldberg, professor of robotics at UC Berkeley, thinks your fear of robots is unfounded.
To say that Shlain is an innovator is a slight understatement. In her career as a filmmaker and futurist, Shlain has released over a dozen films and received countless awards from a host of film festivals. She is a creator with an eye constantly towards the future as technology shapes it.
Tiffany Shlain thinks you’re probably tech-stipated. “What’s that?” you ask? It’s when your various in-boxes and feeds are so clogged with messages and updates that you Just. Can’t. Get. Through. Them.
Tiffany Shlain has a lot of ideas.
But until fairly recently, the 43-year-old founder of the Webby Awards was reluctant to own them on film. No longer — in her new web-series, “The Future Starts Here,” which premiered October 11 on AOL, Shlain is loud, proud and vocal about thoughts ranging from 21st century motherhood, to acceptable online etiquette (hint: Emails masquerading as the great American novel are a no-no.)
Webby Awards founder and filmmaker Tiffany Shlain celebrated her first original series withAOL last week called The Future Starts Here. Shlain hosts the show, sharing her perspective on what it means to live in today’s overly-connected world.
Bitch Flicks was lucky enough to receive an invitation to the premiere of Tiffany Shlain’s new webseries The Future Starts Here in New York City last week, and your humble correspondent was lucky enough to be the one to attend it. Shlain is, as her series’ voiceover states, a mother, filmmaker, and founder of the Webby Awards, and The Future Starts Here is an AOL-produced miniseries about being human in the digital age.
Filmmaker Tiffany Shlain, the founder of the Webby Awards, mother, and filmmaker, has launched a new series on AOL called The Future Starts Here. One of the films in the series is called Motherhood Remixed, and it’s about the changing roles of mothers over the past century. Recently I sat down with Tiffany, who is also a good friend, for a conversation about the film and how the changing roles of mothers are affecting the shape of the 21st-century family.
Now AOL is getting into the web series game with an AOL original series from Tiffany Shlain called The Future Starts Here. This 8 episode series is mostly about technology. Topics like information overload, tech etiquette, robots, and the creative process are included.
Vivian Van Dijk, Editor-in-Chief of EYES IN, attended the premiere film screening and launch party of Tiffany Shlain’s AOL Original Series, “The Future Starts Here” at the Crosby Hotel in Manhattan, on Thursday, October 10. Ms. Van Dijk was extremely impressed with the short films from Tiffany Shlain, all of which are now available to millions of viewers on AOL.
Writer, director, innovator and public speaker Tiffany Shlain is perhaps best known as the founder of The Webby Awards. Establishing an organization devoted to honoring the “best of the Internet” back in 1996, when CompuServe and AOL were still the major internet players and the majority of Americans had yet to get online, was an optimistic move and Shlain continues to exude optimism.
San Francisco filmmaker, TED talker, and expert meme-inventor Tiffany Shlain is back to explain the yin and yang of technology, this time with a new web series, The Future Starts Here, about our co-evolution with tech. The series premieres this Friday, October 11th for the AOL On Network. Here she defines some of her latest go-to terms.
Making an eight-episode series for AOL changed Shlain’s approach to releasing movies. Tiffany Shlain is a filmmaker first and a technologist second. The co-founder of the Webby Awards went to film school, learned to edit movies by splicing actual film, and has made more than a dozen films in her life.

Join us in throwing up the confetti in honor of these gals who are pushing the envelope and bringing brainstorms to life.

CONNECTED: an autobiography about love, death & technology is a fast-paced, eye opening film by Tiffany Shlain that explores the impact of technology and the world’s connectiveness to the Internet and other media that serves to make us more independent, when we should certainly be more interdependent on each other to solve the world’s problem.
Sometimes a documentary not only inspires you, but also gives you courage. I was inspired when legendary filmmaker Agnès Varda stepped in front of the camera to tell her own story.
It’s Friday evening. The smells of rosemary chicken and freshly-baked challah fill the house. My daughters, 3 and 9, sigh as I gently detach the iPads from their laps. One by one, our screens are powered down. My husband, Ken, is usually the last holdout, in his office, madly scrambling to send out just one last email before the sun sets. Then he unplugs too. We light the candles and sit down to a sumptuous meal.
On Sunday night, American television sets will once again host the freakish masked ball known as the Oscars. Demigods will glide importantly down a synthetic staple-gunned red scroll, posing, balletically angled, while fielding questions about denim tuxedos and cocktail rings the size of iPhones. Later some of them, on the brink of hysteria, will accept gilded statuettes, and use the word “humble” to mean “proud.”
“The new tools and technologies that enable video sharing have allowed me and my team at The Moxie Institute to embark on a whole new adventure that we call CLOUD FILMMAKING.”
“The film is emotional but also informative and fascinating. Connected offers viewers a chance to see and connect to Shlain’s collection of thoughts on life and death, love and family, technology and the world, and the connection between it all.”

Insight: “It’s definitely harder to make plans, and we have to print out our schedules the day before,” Shlain says, laughing. “Instead of sending 10 texts to coordinate, we just show up. If we’re late, there will be no cell phone call. It’s the way everyone used to do things.”

Blog Post by Director Tiffany Shlain – The South Africans have a beautiful philosophy called Ubuntu, which translates as “I am what I am because of who we all are.” This is a perfect way to think about the way a brain develops, influenced by its surrounding people and experiences.
The Internet is very young as a form of human interaction. It’s still in a phase of rapid growth and change. If the Internet were a human being, it would be a toddler. Both the Web and children are hugely shaped by our actions as adults.

Sometimes, Tiffany Shlain loves technology: after all, she’s the founder of the Webby Awards and cofounder of the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, whose goal is to help drive the progress of the Internet. But sometimes, she’s not so fond of it: she and her family take “technology shabbats” once a week to unplug from the blinking alerts and scrolling text of their digital gadgets.
Let it Ripple: Mobile Films for Global Change is a series of short films created by two mega-powerful channels: the first is Tiffany Shlain, filmmaker and founder of the Webby Awards, who is the mastermind of Let it Ripple. The other is Cloud Filmmaking, which means creating films in a collaborative, digitally-networked effort.
Tiffany Shlain is an internet evangelist. It comes through in everything she says. She is a true believer in the internet as a force for good, a force for social progress, a force for creativity, a force, even, for making us simply better as members of the human race. It’s uplifting stuff, though I’m tempted to ask her if she’s been on any News24 comment boards lately.
Tiffany Shlain is a multi-award winning filmmaker, her last four films premiered at Sundance, she is the founder of the Webby Awards, she is the co-founder of The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, she delivered thekeynote commencement address at UCBerkeley, and she was honored by Newsweek as one of the “Women Shaping the 21st Century”.

Seeing the opportunities of living in the age of collaboration, filmmaker Tiffany Shlain made a call-out for a ‘participatory revolution,’ which led to the creation of Cloud Filmmaking.
We have screens on our walls and screens on our desks. Screens in our laps and screens in our pockets and screens in our cars. Before long — if Google delivers thecomputers-inside-of-eyeglasses it’s been advertising — we’ll have screens on lenses before our very eyes.
As a filmmaker who hardly shoots anything and is primarily into remixing and recontextualizing images, this explosion of online video was not only a much bigger candy store than I had ever dreamed of, it also completely changed the way I make films. The new tools and technologies that enable video sharing have allowed me and my team at The Moxie Institute to embark on a whole new adventure that we call CLOUD FILMMAKING.
How can someone who wants to bring the Internet to every being with an opposable thumb think technology can be bad?

Even Tiffany Shlain, maker of the movie “Connected,” unplugs once a week. She loves the power of technology but believes in boundaries. “This ‘technology Shabbat’ that I do is very powerful. For a whole day we don’t have television, we don’t have phones, we just garden and fly a kite and we do all these other things,” said Ms. Shlain, a Mill Valley, Calif., filmmaker, wife and mother of daughters nearly 3 and almost 9 years old.
“Connected: An Autoblogography About Love, Death & Technology” presents an interesting view on technology, the brain and the way we connect with those around us.

“A key differentiator between winners and losers will be winners’ capacity to figure out the correct attention-allocation balance in this new environment. Just as we lost oral tradition with the written word, we will lose something big in the coming world, but we will gain as well. “As Sophocles once said, ‘Nothing vast enters the life of mortals without a curse,’” noted Tiffany Shlain, director of the film Connected and founder of the Webby Awards.
In preparation for our upcoming #shiftSXSW event, we would like to highlight a few of our special guests, and, in their honor, address topics that are near and dear to them.

Are you a film lover? Here’s your chance to be part of a movie in the making.
Local documentarian Tiffany Shlain’s 2011 film “Connected” will be one of the 29 films included in the US Department of State’s American Films Showcase. According to the official announcement last week, the project is “an international cultural diplomacy initiative that brings people together worldwide through film.”

With Tiffany Shlain’s personal documentary Connected wrapping up its theatrical run, Doc Soup Man Tom Roston asks why the best known first-person documentarians are men.
Last year we pondered whether 2010 might have been the greatest year ever for documentary films. 2011 has proven a worthy successor, spearheaded by the long-awaited return of the director of possibly the greatest documentary ever (Steve James), a crossover from a BAFTA-award winning director of narrative film (Asif Kapadia), and new works by some of the acknowledged masters of the form (Werner Herzog, Errol Morris, Martin Scorsese, James Marsh). There even emerged, seemingly out nowhere—but actually in the works for eight years—a new masterpiece by a previously completely unknown auteur (Robert Persons). Here’s our judgment on the very best documentary films of 2011.
The four-minute film, A Declaration of Interdependence, features a montage of videos and graphics submitted by people from around the world talking about our connections to each other…
Like one of those faster-than-light particles that’s gone before you can see it, filmmaker and tech innovator Tiffany Shlain zips from the virtual to the real and back again.

Shlain is also the founder of the Webby Awards and co-founder of The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences.
“I was stunned. As an early social media champion who loves few things more than to spark meaningful discussion through things I’ve written or passed along, the “conversation” inspires everything I do. It represents not just the breadth of exchange made possible by this revolution in connectivity, but also its highest ideal — ”
Tiffany Shlain’s newest film, “Connected: An Autoblogography About Love, Death & Technology,” explores the history of human interaction, and the hope that natural and technological connections don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
Even when you sneak off to the bathroom on a lunch date in order to check your email, you’re craving that chemical release of dopamine or oxytocin, not the smooth touch of a glass and plastic handheld body (however sensually pleasing that may be). But that’s just the beginning of the film. I won’t give away the rest.
A filmmaker, founder of The Webby Awards, co-founder of the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences and Aspen Institute fellow, Tiffany Shlain was honored by Newsweek as one of the “Women Shaping the 21st Century.” Her films—known for their approach in unraveling complicated subjects—have been selected by more than 100 festivals and won some 30 awards. Shlain also lectures on the Internet’s influence on society and co-founded The Moxie Institute, which uses new ways to create and distribute socially-minded films, such as her newest, Connected.
As creator of the Webby Awards—the Oscars of online videos—Tiffany Shlain has had a front-row seat to the Web’s power and the creativity unleashed when people with disparate points of view and from different cultures put their minds together.
In her new film, Connected, Webby Awards founder and Internet philosopher Tiffany Shlain sees digital connection as the next step in harnessing our collective brainpower–as long as we don’t lose our ability to relate to each other.
A documentary snapshot of the blurry, ever-evolving intersection of the relationship between technology and human bonds and grander societal development, “Connected” is wonderfully emblematic of the ways that intelligent artists can use the medium of film to explore issues and ask questions in a manner that encourages and bolsters a pleasantly unsettled life of exploration and outreach in the minds and hearts of viewers.
Tiffany Shlain was honored by Newsweek as one of the “women shaping the 21st century.” She is a filmmaker, the founder of the Webby Awards (celebrating the best of the Internet), and co-founder of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.

Once dubbed by Newsweek one of the “Women Shaping the 21st Century,” filmmaker Tiffany Shlain returns to shake things up on screens across the country and around the world.

“Incredibly engaging! ..Like High Tech Terry Gilliam…So lively and so fun, I could not take my eyes off of it!”
Two years into making a full-length documentary, which will have its New York premiere Saturday night, filmmaker Tiffany Shlain realized what was missing.
I sat down with filmmaker Tiffany Shlain to discuss her latest film Connected. Tiffany talks about connections, her day of “unplugging”, hope phones, and the good side of being connected.
Watching the recent Seattle premiere of Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death and Technology, a documentary directed by Tiffany Shlain, I experienced a cascading and interconnected series of thoughts and emotions evoked by this loving tribute to the intellectual and emotional influence that her late father, Leonard Shlain, had on his family and the world at large.
I never intended to be in my own movie. I have made eight movies and have never made a “personal” film. But I will never forget sitting in the editing room after working on “Connected” for two years feeling that here I was making a film about what it means to be connected in the 21st century and I was not connecting to the material.
Tiffany Shlain explores connection and what it means in the 21st century.
Tiffany Shlain’s feature-length documentary Connected is an intensely personal exploration of what human connection means in our modern, technology-obsessed world. In anticipation of the film’s release in New York next week, she shares an excerpt that looks at how our brain chemistry compels us to reach for our gadgets 24-7.
When filmmaker and Webby Awards founder Tiffany Shlain set out to make her first feature, she wanted it to focus on “a brief history of everything in the universe.” After watching that first cut, she realized her signature humor was completely absent from the film. Almost on cue, life intervened and entirely rewrote her goals…
I recently had the opportunity to interview Webby Awards co-founder Tiffany Shlain on her new award-winning feature documentary “Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death & Technology”
Happy Rosh Hashanah! If you’re not celebrating and going out tonight, we found a few things for you to do tonight.

1. CUTTING YOUR OWN TRAILER
Don’t try this. Very dangerous. When you are running at full speed to complete your film on your way to your premiere, don’t fool yourself that you have the perspective to cut your own trailer…
Tiffany Shlain is a filmmaker, artist, founder of The Webby Awards, co-founder of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences and a Henry Crown Fellow of The Aspen Institute. Tiffany’s work with film, technology and activism has received 48 awards and distinctions and her last four films have premiered at Sundance.
Imagine a world without the Internet, and without cellular networks. Communication would be crippled. Keeping in touch would become dramatically more difficult. We wouldn’t know exactly when our Tweet-happy friend went to the store and bought oranges.
In the opening segment of Webby Awards founder Tiffany Shlain‘s new documentary, Connected, she talks about sneaking off from lunch with a dear friend to use the bathroom, when secretly she just wants to check the text messages and emails on her phone. I’m sure we’ve all been in this situation in our lives, probably on a weekly basis!
Although her new documentary, Connected has an eye on the future, director Tiffany Shlain also knows there’s still wisdom to be mined from the past. “Nothing vast enters into the life of mortals free from a curse.” It’s hard to imagine how Sophocles would have reacted to the internet, but the quote from Antigone is effective in describing our species’ ever increasing dependence on technology.
The very idea of being wired to your gadgets and online 24/7 is so that you won’t miss anything. But consider, being super-wired, all the time, means you might be missing something even more significant: life.
Have you ever found yourself faking a trip to the restroom to check your email on your phone or slept with your laptop? Tiffany Shlain, filmmaker and founder of the Webby Awards, is definitely guilty of sneaking off to a fake bathroom break to text, email and tweet and this habit has caused her to ask, “What have we become?” We are all so uber-connected these days that it can be overwhelming and so she set out to create a film about what it means to be connected in this day and age.
AT FIRST GLANCE, Connected appears to be a documentary about the rapid pace with which the world has become networked with communication technology, and it is—but it’s much more than that, too.
“Connected: An Auto blogography about Love, Death & Technology” may be Mill Valley filmmaker Tiffany Shlain’s ninth film, but it’s her first to direct the lens on the deeply personal events of her own life.
Local filmmaker Tiffany Shlain presents a loving account of her final months with her father — surgeon and author Leonard Shlain (“The Alphabet Vs. The Goddess”) — and a brainy, breezy spin through tech-communications history in “Connected: An Autobiography About Love, Death, and Technology.”
One of the first theories discussed in this film is that with the invention of writing, men became dominant over women since writing changed the course of civilization. Writing is a left brain activity and men are more left brain oriented than women. Right brain activity, which is more prominent in women, generally, concerns imagery. It is only appropriate that this film, directed and co-written by a woman, Tiffany Shlain, would be rampant with images, visuals demonstrating almost every word of dialogue.
As San Franciscans (or really, as grown-up Americans), we like to consider ourselves independent: independent from our parents, our families, our hometown and each other.But in her new Sundance-approved filmConnected, opening tonight, local filmmaker Tiffany Shlain asks, “Have you ever faked a restroom trip to check your email?”
One of the most interesting movies of the year launches tomorrow. Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death and Technology is the work of the award-winning filmmaker Tiffany Shlain and it deals in both a personal and idealistic way with the impact of digital connectivity on all of us.
My friend Tiffany Shlain’s new documentary feature film, Connected, opens in select theaters starting this Friday. The film is a lovely and moving meditation on technologies of connection as told through a transformative year in Tiffany’s own life in which she she lost her father, remarkable author and true Renaissance man Leonard Shlain, to a brain tumor, and gained a daughter.
When I entered the office space of Tiffany Shlain at Pier 38, which has the look of a pirate ship refurbished into a tech geek’s dreamland, she was on her iPhone, Bluetooth-in-ear. How apropos of her new documentary “Connected: An Autobiography About Love, Death & Technology,” a rumination on our attachment to 21st century tools of communication. Read more
That we humans are all ever-increasingly connected with one another [as cell phones and the internet foster still-further-reaching institutions, as global trade networks continue to expand, etc] is beyond dispute. What the sum total impact of this dizzying array of newfangled connections will be is, on the other hand, entirely disputed.
The Berlin Film Festival and the activist org Interdependence Movement have named Tiffany Shlain’s doc “Connected” the winner of the first Interdependence Film Prize for emerging filmmakers.
Good documentaries ask tough questions. Director Tiffany Shlain wants to know: how much internet is too much internet? Or maybe: have our digital lives started to over power our physical lives? Shlain has a self-professed love/hate relationship with technology.

Audience Award – Documentary Feature: Connected Mike Cahill’s “Another Earth” won the Audience Award for narrative feature, while Oren Kaplan’s “Hamill” took the nod for “independent feature,” while “Building Hope” won the doc category along with “Connected” and “Love Shines.” 18,000 people attended the event in Wailea, June 15 – 19.
Filmmaker Tiffany Shlain joined me on the set of Revolution to discuss her new film, Connected.
