StepIn - Special Online Edition

If we talk about the future, we are talking about StepIn. In just few years it has confirmed its status as one of the most renowned international think tanks where film industry professionals can discuss the future, sharing experiences and visions and imagining together new behaviors, practices and business models. In a moment like 2020 post-lockdown, this very idea could prove fundamental to evaluate strategies and opportunities for the restart of the industry.

The virtual event, in collaboration with Variety,  will host StepIn in the Variety Streaming Room, with three 50 minute sessions dealing, respectively, with the future of theatrical experience, production, film festivals and markets. Each session will involve up to 5 international speakers, moderated by one of Variety 's journalists.

The sessions are free to attend but require registration. Registration is now open, please find more information here.
