In cooperation with the Film and Media Foundation NRW, funded by the Minister for Federal and European Affairs, International Affairs, and Media of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and Head of the State Chancellery.

The film and media industry is facing major challenges: New streaming and distribution models, AI as well as sustainable and fair productions demand a high degree of innovation and resilience. Against this backdrop, FILM FESTIVAL COLOGNE invites to the presentation of the current NRW production study. Afterwards, Media Minister Nathanael Liminski will discuss the upcoming FFG law amendment with representatives of broadcasters, associations and producers. A third panel will examine the current industry situation in North Rhine-Westphalia. Finally, a get-together invites participants to exchange ideas.
