Europa International Sales Agents Conference - "Set The Trend!"

Saturday, 19 November @ Nordic Hotel Forum Tallinn Sirius from 10.00-13.00


"Broaden the minds means engage, provoke, inspire, and ultimately connect” - Robert Redford, President and founder of Sundance Institute.


In this spirit, Europa International - sales agents’ organization - conference “Set The Trend!” is curating and nurturing the film community by exploring new digital business models that give more value and lead to a win-win situation for all players from the cinematographic chain, to rethink and reboot films distribution due to the digital age.


Set The Trend!” calls the EU and US industries to question themselves about international distribution in digital age: What is the impact of the digital platforms on distribution? Is it possible to have a market balance between a theatrical release and a VoD release? How to improve distribution and festival life of the films in the digital world? Is there a need to rethink the content windowing? And what are the new deals for the role of sales agents in the digital era? How do they position themselves, as right holders, along the classical cinematographic chain (work with distributors and producers vs work with exhibitors and VoD platforms)?
