Australian Feature Film Summit (Stage 1)
October 22 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm$25
The Australian Feature Film Summit (AFFS) will bring exhibitors, distributors, producers and investors together in two events designed to grow the current success of the Australian feature film sector and demonstrated audience appetite for its content.
The Summit will focus on the future and merge art and commerce, facilitating a valuable information exchange between the often-siloed parties of the screen industry and develop ideas for working together more effectively to ensure the success and growth of the theatrical film sector. For the first time, exhibitors will be asked to share insights from working at the coalface in cinemas and provide valuable intel about what gets their audiences through the door. Exhibitors and distributors will also offer a peek at the data that drives programming decisions, while producers will be invited to lift the veil on the development and filmmaking process where the magic begins.
Stage one is an online event that will provide an overview of the performance of Australian cinema in 2020/21 and survey the challenges and opportunities currently facing producers, distributors and exhibitors. It will be a prelude to the main, in-person event in February next year and invite all participants to identify common ground and new ideas on how to increase cinema audiences for Australian films.
