Thessaloniki Online Innovation Day Lab

Thessaloniki Online  Innovation Day Lab

Europa Cinemas is partnering this year again with the Thessaloniki Film Festival (5-15 November 2020) to organise an Audience Development & Innovation Online Lab due to take place on Thursday, November 12th, from 2pm-5pm (Paris local time) and open to 18 European exhibitors.

Join in this Europa Cinemas/Thessaloniki Lab entitled "RE-DESIGNING THE COLLECTIVE CINEMA EXPERIENCE" inviting you to spend some time with European exhibition practitioners to get some perspective on your own context and exchange expertise and best practice about how to cope with these unprecedented times.

Moderated by Frank Groot (Exhibitor, KINO Rotterdam, Netherlands), the focus for this 3-hour Lab will be on sharing approaches to re-designing the cinema experience, on devising programming strategies (in-venue and online), on communication with audiences and health and safety measures with audiences and staff. The lab will involve practice-based insights from fellow exhibitors as well as opportunities for smaller group discussions.

This Lab will strengthen the networking of cinemas and provide a platform where they can share common issues and best practices to find creative solutions to their biggest challenges.
