Internet Privacy Documentary Gets Off to Roaring Start in Sonoma

After world premiering at SLAMdance in January, Cullen Hoback’s documentary Terms and Conditions May Apply re-upped on the film festival circuit this past weekend at the Sonoma International Film Festival. And in what is likely the first of several such prizes, it snagged the event’s Best Documentary Feature nod.

In the coming weeks, this scary look at how much Internet users typically give up when they accept website terms and conditions will screen at film festivals in Newport Beach (April 26-May 2), Toronto (April 26-May 3) and Belgium (May 4-8). Helping feed the buzz are the recognizable names up on screen:

Terms and Conditions May Apply features interviews with musician Moby, futurist Ray Kurzweil and science-fiction author Orson Scott Card, as well as a privacy-invading ambush of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Terms and Conditions May Apply is scheduled to open in limited release in late July. Director Hoback’s previous credits include Monster Camp (2007) and Friction (2010).
