Changing Business Models on the Film Market – What Has the Pandemic Taught Us?
We will discuss the recent changes in the film industry caused by the unprecedented pandemic experience, such as film financing and distribution, new production-distribution models, the role and future of cinemas and current threats and outlooks for the future.
During the debate, we will analyse particular examples of the pandemic experience – films which production and distribution coincided with the pandemic and restrictions that affected the film market.
