On November 26 the trade organization Cinema Technology Community is holding a free, one-day online event entitled One Community Day. As part of the organization's COVID-19 Response Program to support the industry, CTC aims to bring together the cinema industry for more than four hours of original programming focused on cinema and technology.
“Throughout 2020, CTC has aimed to provide support to the industry at this incredibly difficult time,” said CTC president Richard Mitchell. “From our Community Membership Scheme through to the range of deliverables we’ve made available, such as guidance for COVID shutdowns and restarts, a guide to drive-in screenings, white papers, magazines, podcasts and the Tech Talks seminar series, the CTC team has strived to provide vital materials to help drive the industry forward. One Community Day is about bringing the industry together, to celebrate our togetherness even though we’re forced apart and to have a day dedicated to learning, knowledge sharing and networking all online using a unique platform that will allow the audience to truly network and communicate together via text, audio and video chat both publicly and privately.”
With a range of keynote talks, interviews and presentations delivered by an outstanding group of presenters, CTC will be covering issues ranging from Immersive Audio, Series 1 and 2 Projection Uplifts and Interactive and Immersive Technologies as well as shining a light on the issue of Diversity in the industry as a follow-up to CTC’s 2019 Women in Cinema interview series. There will also be a special In The Pub with Mike Bradbury and CTC will unveil its annual award winners for 2020.
“We’re incredibly excited about the event and our ability to harness online to bring everyone together whilst ensuring we have an event that’s truly accessible to all,” said CTC event director Helen Budge. “This event is all about CTC giving back and whilst the event is free, we’ll be fundraising throughout the day and encouraging the audience to donate, even a little to two incredible charities in Variety and Medicinema that are close to our hearts.”
