  ORLANDO, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IRE, Investigative Reporters and Editors, will host a special advance screening of the acclaimed new documentary from Magnolia Pictures and Participant Media, PAGE ONE: Inside The New York Times, at its 2011 Conference in Orlando, Florida. The screening, with writer-director Andrew Rossi and Participant Media’s EVP of Documentary Films Diane Weyermann in attendance, will take place at the Renaissance Orlando Resort at SeaWorld, Oceans 2 Ballroom on Friday, June 10th at 6:30PM, with a pre-screening cocktail reception to take place in the area just adjacent to the Oceans 2 Ballroom. The screening is scheduled to follow a panel featuring the film’s Bill Keller, executive editor of The New York Times.   “IRE is pleased to present this important documentary to our membership in advance of its official release,” said IRE Executive Director Mark Horvit. “The film captures a crucial moment in the evolution of journalism and shows how one of the world’s great newspapers is handling the challenges. We are grateful to Magnolia Pictures and Participant Media for making this screening possible.”   Rossi was given unprecedented access to The New York Times newsroom and the inner workings of the Media Desk for PAGE ONE: Inside The New York Times, opening June 17th in New York. Writers like Brian Stelter, Tim Arango and the salty but brilliant David Carr track print journalism’s metamorphosis even as their own paper struggles to stay vital and solvent, while their editors and publishers grapple with up-to-the-minute issues like controversial new sources and the implications of an online pay-wall. Meanwhile, rigorous journalism is thriving—PAGE ONE gives us an up-close look at the vibrant cross-cubicle debates and collaborations, tenacious jockeying for on-record quotes, and skillful page-one pitching that brings the most venerable newspaper in America to fruition each and every day.   http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20110524006955/en/IRE-Investigative-Reporters-Editors-Host-Special-Advance
