The State of the Industry

« Disruption » – the daunting word that seems to be the constant topic of discussion for our industry. But what does it truly mean? How are technology, streaming and non-traditional release patterns really impacting our box office and viewing habits? And where are the opportunities for us to innovate, grow and adapt in a changing environment where the definition of « film » is being debated and the role of theatres being redefined? Our esteemed panel of guests will address all of these questions and more as they share their thoughts on the next 10 years and what trends they see happening in Canada and around the world

John Fithian, President & CEO, NATO
