As festivals and markets, we have had to reinvent ourselves against the clock in the face of the new situation with COVID-19. What have we learned from this new paradigm? What new tools will be incorporated? Will festivals be the same again, or or is this new reality here to stay?

With the desire to share experience and be able to help each other in this difficult situation, we open a day of reflection to consider the most practical aspects and the production challenges we have encountered.
We want to find out what solutions have been proposed at the different film festivals that have had to completely change their format, postpone their dates or are still studying what their future will be due to the uncertainty we’re in.

This round table will take place on Thursday 21 May from 16h to 17h online and will be open to other festivals and professional audiences so they can take part in the final round of questions.
