While everyone is eager to get back to IRL cinema experiences, much uncertainty remains. How will films debut and be distributed? What will film festivals look like in 2021 and beyond?
Pre-, during and post-pandemic, filmmakers were wondering how to deliver their project to the current standard of DCP (the secure format required by modern digital film projectors). How do you create a seamless workflow for creators, film festivals, and distribution networks? How do creators and distributors integrate advertising to monetize that content? And how do they ultimately get their content OTT-ready?
During this session, attendees heard from community experts on DCP. After the speakers shared their expertise, they opened the floor to live questions and comments. Attendees were invited to come with perspectives, quandaries, and inspiration to join in the conversation.

What are the advantages of new business models and what opportunities have emerged because of this disruption?
