StepIn is a think tank for interdisciplinary exchange, by invitation only, allowing selected industry players to take part in working sessions to discuss the state of the film industry and exchange their point of view.
The basic aim of the initiative is to offer a reserved and proactive environment for professionals from different industry backgrounds (distributors, exhibitors, producers, international sales agents, funding bodies, broadcasters, platforms and delegates from film festivals and markets) to share their own experience, interact, get inspired by one another, and look at how they can implement new behaviours, practices and business models.
StepIn is organized with the support of Eurimages, in partnership with Variety and in collaboration with Europa Cinemas, Europa Distribution and Europa International.
Diego Hangartner & Laurence Lascary
The subject of mental health in the film industry, which was discussed during the Industry Days at this year’s edition, is now at the heart of an episode of Industry Insights - The EFM Podcast. It’s an important and unprecedented opportunity for sharing and cooperation between two key European film events like the the Berlinale and the Locarno Film Festival. Presented by the Berlinale’s European Film Market and made in partnership with Locarno Pro, the episode picks up where we left off in summer, with the analysis of the Looking Glass research project published in 2020. The study revealed a mental health crisis within the UK film and television industry. Two of Locarno74’s StepIn guests discuss the topic: Diego Hangartner, a pharmacologist and coach, and Laurence Lascary, a producer and co-president of Collectif 50/50.
