Qlipso, which acquired the assets of Internet-television outfit Veoh in April, is creating live channels for FilmBuff and The Genesis Files, a Web series from the directors of Hot Tub Time Machine and L.A. Dicks.
The Qlipso platform provides themed rooms with social tools and game mechanics.
The FilmBuff channel will host two live question-and-answer sessions: One with director Jeff Deutchman, about his documentary on the election of President Barack Obama, Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET; and the second with actor/director Ed Burns on his upcoming film, Nice Guy Johnny, Nov. 18 at 9 p.m.
The Genesis Files will debut as a live event, including a Q&A with the directors and series star Angie Ruiz.
