SEMINAR FOR EXHIBITORS
Wednesday, 23 April, 2008, 10 a.m.
Cinema Světozor, Vodičkova 41, Prague 1
“HOW TO RECEIVE EU FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO OPERATE CINEMA THEATRES?”
“AUSTRIAN CINEMA PARADISO” – TIPS FOR ATTRACTIVE CINEMA PROGRAMMING”
“AERO CINEMA – LIVE TRANSMISSIONS FROM THE METROPOLITAN OPERA”
“DIGITAL CINEMAS AND DIGITAL CINEMA DISTRIBUTION – A CASE STUDY FROM THE UK”
The fi rst part of the seminar is designed for Czech exhibitors. It will introduce a system of
fi nancial support from Europa Cinemas, a European cinema network, which provides subsidies
to cinemas screening European non-national fi lms. In the Czech Republic, eighteen cinema
theatres are already using this kind of support and one of the seminar’s objectives is to increase
this number further.
Ivo Andrle will present a project of live transmissions from the Metropolitan Opera, which became
part of the programme of the Aero cinema in Prague, and Alexander Syllaba will present the
Austrian cinema Paradiso, which was granted a prestigious Europa Cinemas Award for Best Initiative
for Young Audiences in 2007 and whose activities could be inspiring for Czech exhibitors.
Alexander Stolz, Senior Executive for Distribution and Exhibition at the UK Film Council, will present
the process of cinema digitisation in the UK, titled Digital Screen Network. He will speak about
the experience with gradual digitisation of cinema theatres and its positive and negative aspects,
and he will explain the direct impact of digitisation on the operation and programming of traditional
cinemas and multiplex theatres, as well as the institutional role in this process. This part of the
seminar will be open also to distributors and representatives of the relevant organisations.
The seminar will be moderated by Ivo Andrle (Aerofi lms s.r.o.)

The seminar will be interpreted into Czech.
