Industry Innovation Forum 2023. Session 2: The European Entertainment Landscape Redefined. Exploring Film, Gaming & Industry During the Gen AI Explosion.

Amid an ongoing boom of generative AI and its “consumer explosion,” the landscape of film, media, and the audiovisual sector is profoundly transforming in Europe and globally as unique challenges and opportunities for the industry are emerging. On the upside, generative AI tools aim to give unprecedented creative opportunities for filmmakers, producers, performers, and the industry at large. Yet, on the downside, the unclear backdrop of rights, ethics, and best practices of using AI content for copyrights, financing, training, and policy hinders the implementation of the potential to benefit the ecosystem.

The Industry Innovation Forum, the flagship executive insight summit, will spearhead the region’s first large-scale debate on AI’s impact across the entertainment sectors.

Organised in partnership with the Creative Europe Media program, the mini-summit brings together an unprecedented selection of the world’s leading AI filmmakers, content creators, and producers, AI platform visionaries and developers, Ethics and Policy Experts, acclaimed industry executives, and veterans to present, debate, and unlock the potential and pitfalls of the gen AI boom in Europe and beyond.
