And the sooner the better

A few posts ago I wrote about how film festivals would look like in a post Coronavirus world.
It was a combination of prediction, analysis and yeah, a wishful thinking too (disclosure: I’m a founder of a digital platform for film festivals).

Less than six months later and it’s partly becoming true: Hybrid events, about which we talked from Day 1, are becoming the new normal. This is due to the fact that in the territories we mainly operate, venues are beginning to reopen. Yet, some audience members choose hybrid over the in-person (physical) option.
As expected, I must add.
