Film business traditions are being assailed from every direction. Studio bastions are being battered. The old hierarchies are being challenged by a new generation of opportunists. Revolution is in the air.

For more than a century now, cinema has operated on essentially the same old industrial model. Today, that well-worn script is being re-written with an unforgiving speed that has caught the movie-making establishment off-guard.

Screen International’s Cinema Next conference will examine the impact that digital will have on the business of film production and distribution. It will look at the new aggregated digital business model, assessing the technology, the consumer electronics, the ways to meet piracy, mobile distribution and the activities of some of the key players in tomorrow’s home entertainment sphere.

Speakers already confirmed at this exciting new event include:

Richard Jobson, Writer/Director/Producer, Vestry Films
Nik Powell, Director, National Film and Television School
Ira Deutchman , President and CEO, Emerging Pictures
Marc Boothe, Producer, B3 Media Lisa MacDonald, Controller of Acquisitions for Pay and Pay Per View, BskyB Pete Buckingham, Head of Distribution, UK Film Council

Cinema Next is for producers, distributors, ISPS, telecoms providers, post production companies and everyone with an interest in tomorrow’s film industry.
