Beyond the Film Poster
Finding a new model of promoting movies in cinemas
This time, cinema managers will be joined by Slovenian producers in discussing effective ways of promoting films on big screens. Since promoting cinema also involves promoting and building film culture, the panel will avoid analysing traditional promotion methods and rather delve into examples of good distribution practices, ways of formulating cinema subscription models, the operation of exhibitor networks in our area, ways of connecting the general film sector and finding practical systemic solutions.

#we_do! Preventing abuse and other forms of discrimination in the film industry
Presentation and talk
Identifying and preventing abuse in the film industry is not easy. The most frequent limiting factors are the fear of negative repercussions or the insufficient knowledge of statutory rights and applicable regulations. Motovila’s event brings into focus an example of good practice – the #we_do! Austrian Consulting Centre – and a discussion on how Slovenia can contribute to creating a more inclusive environment in the film industry.
Dr. Meike Lauggas has been working with the #we_do organisation since its inception. The organisation provides contacts and counselling for filmmakers who have endured abuse of power, discrimination, other abusive practices and labour law violation. As well as organising informative meetings and prevention workshops for film crews, #we_do is developing a protection and safety model applicable to the film industry and adapted to the specific conditions of a film production. The organisation’s long-term goal is to develop structural solutions with a view to improving working conditions in the film industry.
The event is aimed at various profiles of film industry workers.
