In response to challenges caused by COVID 19, distribution has seen major changes. Festivals have taken place online and taken a big role in
online screenings; does this influence the traditional way of
theatrical releases? Virtual cinema came up opportunistically, but is
there a role for it in the future? Sales agents and distributors saw
opportunities in VOD platforms in need of content, but did they live up
to these expectations? Following the fast adaptation to the 'new normal'
by some bigger parties in the industry, this talk will address the
lessons learned so far, the do's and don'ts, what changes will remain
and their sustainability.
Speakers: Anke van Diejen (Picl), Elissa Federoff (NEON) and Philip Mordecai (Florido consulting).
Moderated by Wendy Bernfeld (Rights Stuff).
