Representing the ECA - ECA Team AT ARTHOUSE CONVERGENCE, USA
01 March 2016
The Event Cinema Association (ECA) had a strong presence this past January 19-21 at Arthouse Convergence, the premier conference and gathering for independent & arthouse exhibitors, distributors, technology companies and service providers in North America.
Despite the cold weather and snowstorms, the event - which takes place annually in Midway, Utah (USA) just prior to the Sundance Film Festival in nearby Park City - attracted over 500 attendees who participated in a wide range of screenings, presentations, seminars and panel discussions.
Represented by Jonathan Ross, the ECA had a booth at the Sponsors Lunch where we had significant foot traffic and interest from potential new members eager to learn more about developments and new trends in the global event cinema community.
Then, on the final day of the confab, Jonathan Ross moderated a compelling panel titled 'Making The Case for Event Cinema in Your Theatre' which included, among others, ECA Members Christine Costello from More2Screen (UK) and Mark Rupp of SpectiCast (USA) as panelists.
Event Cinema was a hot topic among the conference's delegates and the ECA will no doubt be back next year for another Arthouse Convergence.
