The Tribeca Film Festival will feature a documentary called Out of Print, looking at the future of books and interviewing founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, self-published author Darcie Chan and other experts.

We’ve linked to the trailer above. AppNewser has more details:

We haven’t seen the death of paper books yet, but there’s already a documentary about its impending demise. EBooks are not as tactile, aromatic, or spatial as traditional forms of reading, but they are helping to spread the joys of reading to places where transportation is problematic. The works of philanthropic organizations like Worldreader and The Information Heritage Initiative would be impossible without digital books.
