    The Future of the AV Industry after the Pandemic: A Look Ahead

    Tuesday, 17 November 2020, at 13.00 online (Zoom)
    The film industry was facing radical changes already before the COVID-19 pandemic, a crisis that only served to accelerate the process of transformation.
    Organised by Motovila Institute (Creative Europe Desk Slovenia) and Slovenian Art Cinema Association in partnership with Centre for Creativity and with the support of the Municipality of Ljubljana and Slovenian Film Centre, the event will take a look into the future of the audio-visual industry in the light of the pandemic and the new EU Creative Europe programme. Two specific issues will be tackled:
    What are the challenges that the audio-visual production, distribution, promotion and consumption will be facing on a 3- to 5-year horizon? Industry analyst Johanna Koljonen, author of the Nostradamus Report 2020 that predicts a time of creative explosion as well as chaos for the international AV industry in the coming years, will provide a general insight into the future of the screen industries. Nostradamus Report is an international initiative to document and analyse industry changes and make projections for the future.

    How do alliances between cinemas and online platforms open up new ways to connect with the audiences? The pandemic prompted many cinemas to stream their films on an on-demand platform, thus enabling the survival of the exhibition sector during these troubled times whilst making it easier for the audiences to access quality films. With examples from the Netherlands, Poland and Croatia, we will try to determine whether this business model is becoming a common practice in the exhibition sector, its implications for cinemas and their audiences, and what we can expect in the coming months as cinemas across Europe are again facing closures. Experiences will be shared by Marynia Gierat (Kino pod Baranami, Krakow), Simon Blaas (Cinema Middelburg, Middelburg) and Alen Munitić (Cinema Mediteran, Split); the discussion will be hosted by Jure Matičič (Slovenian Art Cinema Association, City Cinema Domžale).

    The event will be held in English without translation.
    Upon applying, you will be sent an invite with a join link to the Zoom meeting. Live streaming will also take place on www.liffe.si, Liffe FB and Cankarjev dom’s YouTube channel, as well as the Motovila (CED Slovenia) and the Slovenian Art Cinema Association FB pages.

    More information and applications: www.motovila.si and www.artkinomreza.si.

    The project is co-financed by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund) and the Republic of Slovenia, as well as by the Municipality of Ljubljana and the Slovenian Film Centre.
