first-class, state-of-the-art experience

to watch fresh, innovative and creative contents from filmmakers around the world. 

 

At Riondo’s Ristorante on The Strand, informative seminars and networking gatherings will focus on diversity in the entertainment industry, ways to better integrate technology, how the entertainment business landscape

has changed to provide more opportunities  and give attendees an atmosphere to relax, collaborate and educate.

of unity.
