The European Digital Cinema Forum (EDCF) is once again hosting its long standing and much anticipated EDCF Global Cinema Seminar at IBC.

The Seminar will address the key issues facing the industry in 2022 and beyond, such as creative Solutions to supply chain issues, the challenge of sustainability in the film and cinema sectors, HDR in cinema, broadening out and delivery of content supply and issues around cybersecurity and content. If you want to tap into the industry’s latest thoughts, please join us in Amsterdam.

Hosted by the EDCF and including a wide range of high-level Speakers, the Seminar will take place at 10h00-11h30 on Monday 12 September 2022 in Room E102. The Session will be chaired by David Hancock, President of the EDCF.
