Kino Amok, Gliwice (Poland)

European exhibition network Europa Cinemas has selected 13 projects for the second edition of Collaborate To Innovate, the scheme to reward innovative and collaborative projects developed by exhibitors in the region.

Backed by Creative Europe’s Media programme, Europa Cinemas grants a maximum of €100,000 per project. The 13 new projects, representing 70 member cinemas, will share a total support amount of almost €1 million.

Coming from 16 European countries, the 13 projects cover a wide range of topics: film literacy and young audience development, European film circulation, technological innovation, digital marketing, enhanced cinema-going experience, as well as green practices and inclusion of disadvantaged audiences.

Fifteen projects were selected in 2021 and are now coming to an end. The work and results achieved are being analysed and shared with the network, initially at Europa Cinemas’ Audience Development & Innovation Lab in Bologna, running from June 25-29, in partnership with Cineteca di Bologna.

“One of the core objectives of this programme is to support projects which have the potential to inspire other exhibitors in the network and beyond” said Claude-Eric Poiroux, Europa Cinemas general manager.
