After a short pause due to the pandemic, Europa Distribution is finally back in Karlovy Vary (CZ) to
    organise its distribution workshop in the scope of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.

    About 25 independent distributors, coming from all around Europe, will participate in the first
    edition of the Film Distribution Innovation Hub and take part in the KVIFF’s activities

    As distributors need to stay flexible and curious about the latest technological and digital tools that
    can boost their acquisition and release strategies, ED is launching this very first Film Distribution
    Innovation Hub, a dedicated space where innovative tools with a clear potential application for film
    distribution will be presented by tech companies’ representatives.

    On Tuesday July 5 2022, a public showcase accessible to all accredited participants will present five
    different innovative digital tools, developed by Artinii, Cascade8 NFT Lab, Largo.ai, Usheru and
    Zoan. All have in common to propose solutions aimed at film distributors and consisting in potential
    supports for the release and promotion of European and international films.

    This public showcase will be followed by a private session where the different tools presented will be
    discussed by the tech companies and the distributors only. This will give the possibility for
    distributors to understand how they could practically implement these tools in their daily work, and
    for the tech companies to receive direct feedback from potential users. This session will then be
    completed with the presentations of innovative projects put in place by independent film distributors
    members of Europa Distribution.

    After the workshop in Karlovy Vary, Europa Distribution will continue to discuss independent
    publishing and distribution and the circulation of European independent films through its next events
    in Haugesund, San Sebastian, Rome and Amsterdam. Articles on all our events are published on
