EUROPEAN INDEPENDENT PRODUCTION AT A CROSSROADS. DEBATE ON THE FUTURE OF THE AUDIOVISUAL MARKET
The film market is changing so rapidly that film and series production and distribution models today can’t compare with those of three years ago. The post-pandemic reality and the general economic situation in Europe, linked, among other things, to the war in Ukraine, certainly contribute to this evolution. Independent producers face increasing challenges, and film institutes adapt to the new balance of power. The growing presence of global players on local markets influences the choice of production partners, highlighting the importance of the IP address of individual films, increasing demand for screenplays and key filmmakers, so-called talents.
During the event, we will discuss substantial changes happening as we speak in the film market in Poland, Europe and globally. We have invited representatives of the Polish market and CEPI European Audiovisual Production members to join the discussion. We will consider possible strategies for local producers to develop and maintain their independence. It will also be an opportunity to discuss altering the model of public support for European productions.
