Discussion ‘Does Netflix Affect the Language of Cinema?’

Duration
90’

VOD platforms are now not just popular, and they don’t just receive major awards in the film industry. They have rewired the market, and are beginning to affect the form of film itself. Documentary films are made by Netflix and the Guardian, digital distribution is growing, and platforms dictate their own rules to directors and producers. What are these rules, and has the way we watch films changed? How much cinema is actually still left in the new digital product? All of this will be discussed by participants in the contemporary film process: film critics, founders and editors of online platforms with documentary content.
