Nostradamus - Looking ahead

Film, TV and the digital media are converging and distribution, rights, business models, technologies and audience expectations are changing all at once. Five years back feels a lifetime ago, five years into the future is overwhelmingly far away. Livelihoods are threatened, funding structures are in flux and new opportunities arise.

On January 31st, 2014, Göteborg International Film Festival supported by Lindholmen Science Park and Nordisk Film & TV Fond launch the Nostradamus initiative to document and aggregate industry changes and prophecy the future. Nostradamus will be a curated resource for finding solid information, a platform for meetings and discussion, and a framework for identifying problems that need resolving or support structures that are needed while the industry transforms.

We started by talking to a handful of players in the industry about where we are now and what will happen in the next 3-5 years. This report on short-term visions is released at this seminar, which also continues the discussion on two immediate issues: where holdback times and release models are heading next, and what trying to approach screen media from the consumer perspective tells us about the future.

Come and shape Nostradamus – a resource created for you.

On the seminar panels: Jakob Bjur, audience researcher; Rikke Ennis, TrustNordisk; Michael Gubbins, Sampomedia; Jonathan Marlow, Fandor; Jonathan Olsberg, founder & chairman Olsberg • SPI;  Jérôme Paillard, Cannes Film Market; Åsa Sjöberg, TV4; Bengt Toll, consultant.
