Overview of our industry opportunities for Digital Industry Passholders.
These are indeed strange times. The COVID-19 outbreak has seen a worldwide lockdown, many industries including film and TV put on hold, and arts and cultural events and institutions cancelled and closed. Yet, we have also seen extraordinary resilience, community spirit and support from all parts of our industry. There is no doubt that the global pandemic will bring about seismic shifts for the media landscape, but how these will manifest themselves or what this may mean for the future of film as an artform is, as yet, unknown.
We will explore these questions and more in our series of virtual panels and group discussions across the summer, and into our Autumn weekenders in October and November.
Our programme of activity will be announced soon. Below is a small selection of what is on offer for digital pass holders.
