EFM Horizon 2019 kicked off with a visionary keynote by pioneer and disruptor Alex McDowell, a narrative designer working at the intersection of design, technology and storytelling and the founder and director of Creative Design. The five-day programme also included two events looking at the states of AI and blockchain in film and entertainment, a collaborative session with 2019 Country in Focus Norway on innovative strategies and technologies re-shaping the current production landscape, and the Re:Vision Think Tank, a working session with film and entertainment professionals from all walks and corners of the globe, exploring how to achieve greater inclusivity across all sectors of the industry. In addition, EFM Horizon 2019 included the successful and previously established programmes Industry Debates, Propellor FilmTech Meetup, the VR NOW Summit and VRNEXT Investors Club, and the 5th anniversary of EFM Startups. The progamme also presented Crossing the Bridge Between Tech and (Online) Distribution, a follow-up on last year's inaugural event bringing together A/V content distributors and tech companies to discuss the future of entertainment services and experiences.
