While certain VOD and online platforms have shown promise for international films, arthouse buyers have become increasingly cautious about taking risks on challenging films from around the world. This panel, featuring buyers and sellers specializing in this arena, will explore the opportunities for world cinema in the distribution arena and speculate on how the audience for intelligent art cinema from around the world can be grown in the new world. Screen International journalist Mike Goodridge will chair the panel.
