Film and Television: Falling in Love again?

The good news is that following a fascinating conference last year called, “Show me the Money”, the European Audiovisual Observatory is taking a look at the symbiotic relationship between television and cinema on May 15 at 3pm. Although this is from a  European perspective, the co-production environment means that all sides of the movie business are concerned.

More specifically, the conference will ask:

  • How does television contribute towards financing film production?
  • What sort of showcase does television represent for films?
  • What are the legal obligations for television to invest in film?

Expect presentations on:

 

  • Film scheduling on traditional and pay-TV channels in Europe: Who’s showing the most movies?
  • The success of film on TV in Europe : What’s the success rate ?
  • The role of broadcasters in the financing of film funds: How important is TV money to film funds?
  • Broadcaster’s legal obligations to invest in film production: What’s law got to do with it?
  • Box office trends in 2010: Which impact did 3D have on cinema markets?

These will be followed by a panel discussion on the possible evolution of the relationship between film and television; the AVMS Directive as a means of promoting  European film; investment obligations of the various partners and the evolution of exploitation windows.

 

Taking part on the panel moderated by Michael Gubbins, author and consultant :

 

–       Pascal Rogard, Director of the SACD (Société des auteurs et compositeurs dramatiques, France)

–        Martin Moszkowicz, Chairman of the European Producers’ Club
