Venues and viewing modes for presenting films to the mainstream public
can vary considerably, impacting heavily on viewers’ perception of
individual titles. In an increasingly fragmented global landscape,
featuring advance world premieres online and partnerships between movie
theaters and streaming platforms, what does the future hold for the
Swiss film industry? Will the domestic marketplace come through the
crisis brought on by the global pandemic, which has effectively already
torn up the theatrical release calendar for 2020?
These crucial questions will all be addressed at SwissBiz, a 90-minute
round table during which five players in the Swiss film industry will
intervene as speakers with their respective points of view, followed by
a Q&A session with the online audience.
