RIGA IFF FORUM EUROPEAN CHILDREN’S FILM PITCHING SESSIONS PRESENTATION: FILM IN LATVIA 2017
A large number of quality children’s films are traveling around festivals and bright ideas for children’s content are pitched in forums all across Europe. At the same time considerably smaller number of films are shown at European cinemas, making existence in the market more challenging for sales agencies and distributors.
In the meantime new mediums as virtual and augmented reality are open for new content. As quality and innovative content is one of the strongholds of European cinema, there is a food for thought: is there an open possibility of symbiotic co-operation between the domains of cinema and tech? But are they more accessible and more effective in capturing the public’s eye than traditional ways of marketing? Also – what would the linking of the two worlds mean for cinema?
Participants of the panel discussion: Ainars Klavins from digital agency Overly (Latvia), researcher from Tartu University – Madis Vasser (Estonia), sales agent Silke Wilfinger from Silkway films (Germany), TASSE FILM producer Aija Bērziņa (Latvia) as well as Inese Apse – head of marketing and distribution of Acme Film Latvija.
Working language: English
The panel will also be live streamed on LSM.lv
