Cinema : towards the audiences of tomorrow…

Cannes, France (rushprnews) May 5,2007On the opening day of its 60th anniversary, the Festival de Cannes is proposing a moment of reflection on the opportunities and challenges of the next decade.

Film industry representatives, new media players, journalists and sociologists from around the world will share their experiences and views on how the fast evolving digital economy is shaping new roles for directors, producers and distributors while offering exciting opportunities to creators and audiences.
They will debate on the evolution of audience practices and on the ties between cinema creation and new promotional and broadcast platforms.
The following questions will be discussed:
• From an audience perspective, how has the digital revolution changed the way
films are selected, viewed, watched, interpreted and communicated? Will the film
theatre continue to be the reference for cinema viewing?
• What will the new medias for cinema and the audiences of tomorrow be: Web 2.0,
screenings on demand, DVD-HD, VoD, Social communities, Blogs, Vlogs, Mobile
Media, Virtual Worlds…?
• Will tomorrow’s marketplace be split between different categories of films:
blockbusters, film-events, author films, niche films…? What new promotional tools
are being developed and what are the new business models that are emerging? What
could the role and the implication of the duo creator-producer be and what will the
impact on the role of the distributor be? How can film festivals play a positive role in
accompanying creators in this new environment?
Guest Speakers:
Colin Brown, Editor-in-Chief, Screen International will moderate the discussion between the
following guest speakers:

• Danah Boyd, Ethnographer and researcher of social media networks and doctoral
candidate in the School of Information at the University of California-Berkeley (USA)
