‘Watching the Movie Watchers’?

Film Hub NI, Film and Broadcast @ Queen’s University Belfast and RTS NI are delighted to welcome Stephen Follows to the Belfast Media Festival.

Right now, the film industry is going through a massive change. Physical discs are being swept away by the streams of Netflix, Amazon and the rest and the business models of movies are shifting.

But among all this chaos, one thing has stayed the same – us.  The movies we enjoy watching haven’t shifted.  So what can we learn by watching the movie watchers?

This event will be an opportunity for all those involved in creating for the screen, from students to hardened professionals, to hear how to analyse and interpret data to better understand production and exhibition, discover recent trends in audience habits, how format changes consumption and how creatives should approach audiences.

This event is part of BBC Digital Cities Belfast.

Location: The Works
Time: Day 2 Thursday 14.30 – 15.30
