Given the changing landscape of film markets, it is crucial to look at attempts to innovate and disrupt traditional distribution models. This workshop will aim to give space to those taking risks and testing out new solutions, and will create an environment in which film industry professionals can come together and work on maximising the potential of those projects.
This hands-on workshop will consist of 3-4 challenges, each allocated to a round-table, showcasing an organisation or individual trying out new or alternative models of distribution.
Each round-table will focus on a specific problem encountered by the challenge-owner and will strive to generate new ideas or possible solutions. The event is jointly designed and organized by EFM Horizon and Next Wave, a creative incubator of young film professionals focused on radically rethinking exploitation chain and film market.
