5:30 PM - 6:45 PM : EPC round table - Can the current crisis be an opportunity for the distribution of European films ? (60 mn, ONLINE)

The COVID crisis has shut down our theaters. Not all the films have been back, and US ones are still missing from our screens. However the decrease of the Box Office is compensated by a better performance of national and European films, helped by national support’s actions for distribution.

Is this crisis an opportunity for European films? What can we learn out of this period for the distribution of European films? What perspectives can we draw on a wider framework?

Andrea Occhipinti (LUCKY RED, Italy, CEO)
