Europa Distribution organises the Film Distribution Innovation Hub at Karlovy Vary
- The event is a space where innovative tools with a clear potential application for film distribution will be presented to professionals by tech companies’ representatives
After a short pause due to the pandemic, Europa Distribution is finally back in Karlovy Vary to organise its distribution workshop in the scope of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. About 25 independent distributors, coming from all around Europe, will participate in the first edition of the Film Distribution Innovation Hub and take part in the KVIFF’s activities.
As distributors need to stay flexible and curious about the latest technological and digital tools that can boost their acquisition and release strategies, ED is launching this very first Film Distribution Innovation Hub, a dedicated space where innovative tools with a clear potential application for film distribution will be presented by tech companies’ representatives.
On Tuesday 5 July, a public showcase accessible to all accredited participants will present five different innovative digital tools, developed by Artinii, Cascade8 NFT Lab, Largo.ai, Usheru and Zoan. All have in common to propose solutions aimed at film distributors and consisting in potential supports for the release and promotion of European and international films.
This public showcase will be followed by a private session where the different tools presented will be discussed by the tech companies and the distributors only. This will give the possibility for distributors to understand how they could practically implement these tools in their daily work, and for the tech companies to receive direct feedback from potential users. This session will then be completed with the presentations of innovative projects put in place by independent film distributors members of Europa Distribution.
After the workshop in Karlovy Vary, Europa Distribution will continue to discuss independent publishing and distribution and the circulation of European independent films through its next events in Haugesund, San Sebastian, Rome and Amsterdam.
