Film Festivals Days Final Program, will participate, cover (and speak)




FFD 2019 program is out!

This will be an event like no other as it is based on the analytics and data to drive change and audience. Without research and scientific data, there is no way to drive artistic development and its expansion. This will start a new paradigm in the industry, trying to fight the aversion to strategy that has been holding back innovation and growth. That is also why we developed these 5 learning topics, as the beginning to start understanding the needs of the future if festivals want to thrive.
