Academy Award-winning actress turned producer Alicia Vikander is anything but your average household name.
Ready to get inspired?
Discount code FEST21 expires on September 28.
In a short time, she has transformed into an international superstar with four major films - Testament of Youth, Ex Machina, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and The Danish Girl. Last year, she starred in Jason Bourne, opposite Matt Damon as well as The Light Between Oceans with Michael Fassbender. This year she stole the show in Birds Like Us, Tulip Forever, Wim Wenders’s Submergence, as well as Europhoria, which also happens to be the first title from her production company Vikarious Productions. Up next, Vikander will play Lara Croft in the much-anticipated 2018 release of Tomb Raider. At just 28 years old, there’s no limit to where her talents will take her. Don’t miss the chance to hear from Ms. Vikander speak at our upcoming Zurich Summit as she gives insight into her experiences and lessons learned within the film industry and explores future plans for Vikarious Productions.
While some college kids procrastinate on assignments and struggle to pick a major, 
others are out inventing solutions to make the world better, smarter and in some cases - a little more fun.

How will the New Face of Distribution Save Independent Cinema? 

No one will forget the Best Picture award ceremony at the 2017 Academy Awards, but there’s a detail lost in the shock and recriminations: It was the moment that announced A24 as an industry game changer.

It’s an uncertain and exciting time for the independent world and companies like A24 prove that great movies still matter whatever this summer’s box office says. So, what does the new face of distribution mean? Who are they and what value are they offering? Register for the Zurich Summit and hear what’s next with the distribution evolution.
