Nostradamus - Looking ahead
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.
