In this context, NEXT has become the platform for the innovative entrepreneurs of the Film Market. This is an exclusive Pavillon that brings together the most creative companies in the field with an 85-seat conference room entirely dedicated to the future of cinema where round tables, workshops and screenings take place daily.
Audience Engagement, Digital Marketing, Global Distribution, Multiple Platforms, Virtual Reality… These concepts represent the most advanced developments in the film industry. As such, NEXT focuses on identifying and presenting new economic models implemented and tested by the industry’s most innovative pioneers.
At NEXT, Wallimage maintains an active presence once again – this time represented by its new division Wallimage Creative, a new effort that invests one million euros in new media and crossmedia platforms annually.
On Tuesday, May 17, Wallimage Creative will lead a conference called “One Million for New Media and What’s Coming Next”. The presentation will be held at the NEXT Conference room, from 3pm to 5pm. Through the presentation, Wallimage Creative will showcase the new projects it is supporting, and then present the R/O Institute, a new institute to be built very soon in Charleroi and dedicated to converging narratives!
