The 6-day conference delivered a hit of optimism on what the future of the industry has in store as it regenerates after a tumultuous year globally.
The global line-up of leading filmmaking and industry talent hailed from eighteen different countries and the event is set to be more accessible and inclusive than ever before as it goes digital.
