The Film Market

Saturday 29th May 2021

In parallel to the Official Selection, the ChangeNOW Film Market aims to bring together film and audiovisual professionals to accelerate change. We believe that the audiovisual sector has a big role to play in changing mentalities. On the other hand, the film industry must also change and adopt a more responsible approach in order to move towards a sustainable audiovisual production. Producers, directors, distributors, scriptwriters, film students, but also specialists, experts and committed citizens are here to shape the future of the film industry !
