Through ongoing online dialogue, polls, forums, deep dive 'unconferences', debates, town-hall style meetings and social events, leading up to an annual summit-style general assembly of a united nations of film, we will cover issues such as:

- jobs: Why is the industry facing massive economic losses and job cuts, and what can we do about it?

- copyright & piracy: are new models of copyright and royalty payments needed in the age of 'sharing', or can technology solve the copyright conundrum?

- pay- walls; as our audiences move online, should we add pay-walls, and if so- how can they be effectively implemented?

- labor; creative artists are being increasingly asked- and expected- to work purely for "exposure" and experience, after even a decade of experience. What 'fair trade' standards and boundaries can be established to stop the exploitation of creativity?

- crowd-funding; is the new era of crowd-sourcing helping or hurting the industry and its artists?

- the gender gap; Other industries are light-years ahead in closing the gender gap, and discussions have emerged from the World Economic Forum about 50-50 gender quotas being mandated - and perhaps even legislated- for board and panel representations. Is our industry making enough progress on these issues, or are mandated quotas the only solution?

VIPs and a diverse range of key professionals showing leadership in their field will be invited to attend to represent writers, directors, actors, producers, broadcasters, studios, entertainment lawyers, journalists, publishers, technology entrepreneurs, non-profits, government, academia, social media mavericks and more.

Attendees will be invited to suggest topics for discussion, co-designing and creating an important avenue for dialogue about the issues facing us all - as well as an unprecedented opportunity for networking, with the aim of collaborating for the greater good of our industry
