CICAE at Berlinale EFM 2021

    The evolution of the Arthouse Exhibition

    3 March // 16:00 - 17:00 // via zoom (with pre-registration) and youtube

    The film industry is at a point of resetting. This panel, bringing together representatives of the film industry and policy makers, aims at reimagining the industry.

    The opening question is how the sector can be reshaped, by looking at collaborative efforts, new projects, as well as at the value of interpersonal connection and digital offers.

    It is also an occasion to look at how the arthouse exhibition is staying at top of the game, arthouse cinemas engaging their audiences at their best.
