Virtual Cinema is defined as the situation in which cinema can offer films to an online audience through a platform of their own, or through an external / central platform. This can be in the theatrical window or later in de films lifecycle.

Improve knowledge on Virtual Cinema in Europe, working together with independent cinemas and distributors
Create new business models for local exhibitors through the deployment of new technologies that make VOD and hybrid distribution of European arthouse films available
