German Age Rating

Panel discussion (in English) organized by CHILI

Fundamental changes are happening to the way that the content of audiovisual productions is being used. The race is on to consolidate existing online platforms; big, new providers are forcing their way into the market. Expanding global content goes along with being able to make a wide range of content available to a large viewership. How should German and European producers present themselves in this new context? Must online platforms automatically compete with movie theater chains and film distributors, or are there cooperative business models? How do online platforms alter the significance and availability of German and European content? A top-level panel will pose these questions and related ones regarding one of the most significant structural challenges to the film industry.

This discussion is being presented by CHILI, the innovative platform for the best films and TV series, which is continuing its path to success in Europe. In Italy, CHILI is now the biggest entertainment conglomerate without a mandatory subscription model. In Britain, since CHILI launched its Web site there last year, the company has found 400,000 new customers, raising its total number of customers to 3 million. In 2019, CHILI is continuing this explosive growth by expanding its activities in Germany, Austria, and Poland.

CHILI intends to establish Europe's leading TVOD corporation. European films comprise a significant portion of the total catalogue of the national subsidiary platforms, with a focus on film productions from the respective countries and a solid annual rate of growth for European and national content.

The panelists are:

  • Feo Aladag (producer, filmmaker, actress)

  • Wasiliki Bleser (producer, CEO Starhaus)

  • Philipp Kreuzer (producer, CEO Maze Pictures)

  • Giorgio Tacchia (founder & CEO, CHILI)

  • Moderator: Geoffrey Macnab, Screen International

In collaboration with Produzentenverband e.V. (the Producers' Association) / Afterward, a cocktail reception will be held in the VIP Lounge.
