Quo Vadis Kino?

Symposium Cinema Perspectives

In addition to the current challenges facing the cinema in the form of digital home entertainment offerings for movies, games, television and radio formats, the last 21 months have seen the cinema closures in the Corona pandemic.

Cinema has been declared dead time and again, but it is far from dead.

But what is changing in the industry and how is cinema changing or should it change? Three discussion forums will shed light on this.

Round table 1 – Cinema & Co (change in the status quo)

Saturday 25.9 at 2 pm

How does the cooperation between cinemas, producers, distributors, funding and audiences work and what opportunities and challenges has the Corona pandemic opened up? We will discuss these and many other questions with illustrious actors from different fields of work.

Round table 2 – Cinema as a cultural venue

Saturday, 25.9. at 3.30 pm

What is cinema actually and what social significance does it fill? What role does cinema play in the urban context and in rural areas? Cinema operators, urban planners and sociologists will discuss this question from different perspectives.

Round table 3 – Cinemas in their diversity

Saturday , 25.9. um 5pm

The range of cinema forms is incredibly wide. Cinemas differ not only in terms of construction, but also in their programming, their standards and their structural forms. Some have grown into large companies, others are run as associations. In this panel, the participants will present different cinema concepts.

Jens Schneiderheinze, Die Linse e.V., will moderate the afternoon.
