Save the Date - Europa Distribution Panel at EFM 2023

    A new wave of economic challenges and shifting consumer trends are disrupting the post-Covid recovery for European film, testing business models and financial sustainability.

    Building a sustainable strategy to win audiences in such a climate is complicated, not least in distinguishing between short-term consumer trends and long-term changes to demand. Even for distributors/publishers, with a long track record of adapting to change, it is a challenging time. Many in the industry have been adapting their models to create more effective engagement between films and audiences, in cinemas and online.  More simply, they are changing because the audience is changing.

    This panel will explore these new realities and the potential for innovative and collaborative approaches across the value chain.
