Details

This session will look at how Everyman responded to a sparse and ever-changing release slate last year, with an insight into both the challenges and opportunities that the pandemic presented. Reflecting on what they have learnt, Deputy Head of Film Serena Gill will map out the path ahead as cinemas prepare to re-open, and, more specifically, explore the reasons to stay optimistic.

This talk is part of a series of virtual masterclasses by film and media practitioners, seeking to enable scholars and professionals in the field to share their experience and grow new partnerships. The series forms part of a strand within the newly established Creative Industries Research and Innovation Network (CIRIN) at Oxford Brookes University, which responds to the need for increased attention to the role of the creative industries in social, political and economic terms.

Each instalment of the series will seek to highlight current work undertaken in the field and suggest opportunities for growth and collaboration, while necessarily acknowledging the impact of the COVID-19 crisis from across multiple perspectives within the sector. Special attention will be reserved for the role played by new media platforms of content production, distribution and consumption in the context of a seemingly endless digital expansion, struggling cinema exhibition and shortening theatrical release windows.

The format of the series will allow for dialogue with the attendees, answering questions and networking.
