About the Event
Making it to 2030? Facing Film's challenging Future. As 2020 begins, we might ask ourselves: Will the film world (as we know it) even survive the next ten years? When speculating about the future of film, some trends seem clear—audiences abandoning the big screen as theater attendance dwindles, while our streaming culture reigns supreme, even as competition between tech, telecom and media giants becomes more cutthroat. Meanwhile, other new developments may prove more unpredictable, especially when it comes to the shifting hype cycles for new media technologies. Will AI, for everything from script development to distribution, continue to power ahead, while AR/VR/XR and blockchain continue on their slow and steady trajectory? Will increasingly cinematic storytelling in the game industry give Hollywood a run for its money? Beyond this, there are even tougher challenges to tackle —such as diversity and sustainability. This session brings together today's pioneers in film and media for a discussion that aims to find ways not just to think through, but to shape entertainment's undecided future.
