"DigiTraining Plus: What do you do with digital now you've got it?", the training course organized by MEDIA Salles on cinema in the digital age, will be held in Prague and Bratislava from 26 to 30 August.
Up to 20 June 2015 enrolments for the 12th edition of the DigiTraining Plus can be made at the special price of 850 euro + VAT, which includes 4 nights in Prague and Bratislava. Some scholarships are available.
Financed by Creative Europe MEDIA Sub-programme and by the Italian Government, in this edition DigiTraining Plus involves the Czech and Slovak Republics as its new partners: Czech Exhibitors' Association, National Film Archive - CZ, Slovak Film Institute, Association of Slovak Film Clubs, State Cinematography Fund - CZ, Ministry of Culture - CZ. The presentation of the course during the Cannes Film Festival was in fact held at the Czech and Slovak Pavilion on 16 May. This provided an opportunity to screen the promotional video for DigiTraining Plus, made by the Czech artist Karolína Slováková (watch the video here).
Participants will move between Prague and Bratislava on their visits to the cinemas Světozor, Aero, Hostivař and Lumière. They will listen to talks by speakers with international experience, with whom they will be able to interact and who will provide inspiration for debates and more detailed investigation. The topics will touch on issues of current interest, from the replacement of digital projectors nearing obsolescence to the introduction of new services and equipment such as laser technology, HDR and immersive sound, right up to added content and the use of the social media in building audience. In addition, special spaces on the programme will be reserved for exchanges between participants.
This will be an opportunity for exhibitors, programmers, distributors of digital content and those who work in film archives or in public institutions in this sector to update on the state and prospects of cinema exhibition, acquiring tools for the analysis of the new markets and the offer to audiences in view of the changes that the new technologies have brought to theatre management and programming.
