In association with the EU’s Creative Europe MEDIA programme, La Biennale di Venezia will organise another edition of the European Film Forum that will gather key industry leaders from all over the world.

The European Film Forum will be an opportunity to look into how the audiovisual industry has adapted to the new context and how it is reinventing itself. Cinema is bouncing back and remerging stronger from the crisis, but what are the challenges and opportunities behind this recovery?

This past year has also shown the importance of public policy, of coordination and of rapid response from public institutions – hence the EU Recovery and Resilience Facility will be in the spotlight. The facility aims at mitigating the economic and social impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, while enhancing resilience through promoting the green and digital transition in Europe. Measures targeting the support of the cultural and creative sectors will in turn have a stronger societal impact and help transform national and local economies.

The cultural and creative industries have innovated rapidly, experimenting cross-over between different cultural sectors and adapting themselves to new formats and models. Beyond the short-term heavy disruption, how can the current trends drive future innovation?
