NEXT WAVE is a 9-month professional training programme focused on the cinephilia of the future and the development of international film markets: How can film sales, distribution, and traditional exhibition models, alongside streaming and festivals respond to the challenges of the film markets in the 21st century?
Who is this programme for? NEXT WAVE is designed for professionals from the areas of sales, distribution, exhibition, festivals and marketing, with a working experience of 3-5 years, who are willing to gain in-depth knowledge of the industry, build a professional network, and develop their own strategies for future film markets.
Up until now, there has been no post-graduate level programme that brings together the professionals who will reinvigorate sales, festivals, marketing, programming, and audience development in the European landscape and beyond. NEXT WAVE aims to fill that gap, while responding to the rapid transformation of audio-visual markets in the digital age.
