The one-day event will focus on live cinema as the way forward for the cinema experience. There will be practical workshops to develop skills in event management, marketing and community cinema programming and a series of short talks and panel discussion with experts in the field of cinema exhibition including Tara Sachdeva (Compass Presents), Charlotte March (Creative Giants Art), Malisa Chafer (No6 Cinema) and Roy Hanney (Making Waves Film Festival and DVMISSION).
Roy Hanney Director of Making Waves Film Festival said:
"The landscape of cinema exhibition has changed over the last few years, in part due to the pandemic which saw a shift towards streaming and a general change in audience behaviour. At the same time, there have been a number of success stories for live, event, immersive and expanded cinema.
This special event is open to cinema fans curious to experience film is a new way and event producers looking for new ideas and opportunities"
Yael Freidman, Principal Lecturer and Academic Lead in Media and Screen Studies at the University of Portsmouth said:
"The University of Portsmouth is delighted to collaborate with Making Waves Film Festival in hosting this special one day event and to bring together experts from the cinema industry to share their insights on the future of the cinema."
