The Cinema Experience In The Age Of Digital Distractions?

 

Europa Cinemas Audience Development & Innovation Lab

Bologna – Saturday 25th to Wednesday 29th June 2016

 

2016_BolognaLab_279

In an era of increasing digital availability of films, where does the cinema sit with audiences expectations and viewing habits? To what extent is the cinema experience enhanced or diminished by the emergence of virtual reality, multi-platform releases and immersive experiences? How can cinemas think creatively and playfully about creating spaces and presenting film experiences that are in tune with the next generation of film-goers and film-makers? Our focus in Bologna, within a festival that is committed to ‘rediscovering’ lost or forgotten cinema is on the critical issue of engaging the next generation of audiences.

The seminar will be directed by Madeleine Probst (Programme Producer, Watershed in Bristol, Great-Britain) together with Mathias Holtz (Programming Manager, Folkets Hus och Parker, Sweden) and Daniel Sibbers (Director of Marketing, Yorck Kinogruppe, Germany).

As per last year, the lab includes some Open Slot sessions, giving participants the space to pitch innovative projects and/or approaches that have either already been delivered or that could be  implemented in the foreseeable future. This is an opportunity for sharing with your peers and/or identifying potential international collaborators for new projects.

Spend five days to reflect on these timely questions, take part in practical workshops, share with your peers, extend your networks and unleash your creative thinking!

This seminar is open to all exhibitors from Europe. The number of participants is limited to 30 persons. Applications will be considered in the order they are received. However, priority will be given to exhibitors who have not taken part in any previous sessions.
