With the aim of reactivating the Valencian audiovisual industry and give it tools to work side by side with the other international and national agents from the sector, VLC Pitch Forum, alongside the Mostra de València, proposes a series of panels for professionals where different audiovisual companies (producers, channels and/or platforms) can explain what processes they follow with the projects they produce.
It is important to know what will be produced in the future, where the industry is heading and what the most demanded content and trends are.
PANEL PRO 1: THE FUTURE OF CINEMA, STRATEGIES OF THE PAST?
With the COVID-19 pandemic, theatres went into a crisis which we will see what the future consequences are.
