The next European Film Forum will take place during the 74th Venice International Film Festival where the European Commission will be co-organising two events, on 3 and 4 September 2017.

Virtual Reality

The first event will focus on virtual reality: "Virtual gets real: exploring the industrial and societal effects of Virtual Reality". It will take place on Sunday 3 September, from 15:00 to 18:00 at the Excelsior Hotel, Venice Lido, Sala degli Stucchi.

EU's support to the audiovisual industry

The second event will be devoted to EU's support to the audiovisual industry, and will particularly focus on "Shaping together the MEDIA Programme of the future". It is expected that the newly appointed Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, Mariya Gabriel, will be sharing her perspective on the current and future MEDIA programme during the event. The event will take place on Monday 4 September, from 10:00 to 11:45 at the Excelsior Hotel, Venice Lido, Sala degli Stucchi.
