COPING WITH UNCERTAINTY – navigating live-action children’s film releases through the pandemic
30 November, 12:00 – 13:00 CET, online
TWO projects TWO different decisions and ONE pandemic that continues to disrupt everyone working in the creative industries. This webinar follows up on two projects introduced at Kids Kino Industry’s earlier edition – “Triple Trouble” (Poland) and “Christmas in the Jungle” (Latvia, Estonia) and will assess how this year’s challenging situation affected their release strategies. In a lively panel talk our guests will share their experience on their distribution & marketing decisions, discuss the role of cinema and festival recognition, reflect whether pre-sales remain viable and how to plan within uncertainty in the future.
This event is aimed at companies who produce live-action feature films for children and who are planning their financing structure.
