FAST FORWARD: Master plan for the Flemish field of audiovisual exhibition,01/10/2011 BAM
In April 2011, BAM presented "Beyond the Screening" (original title "Voorbij de vertoning"), a field analysis in which the various film exhibitors were given ample opportunity to express themselves. It became very clear from this report that there is a large variety of exhibitors and that the audiovisual sector as such is evolving permanently. The analysis not only enumerates the functions and roles of the current exhibition venues and organizations, but also implicitly and explicitly formulates a number of important challenges faced by the industry.
Considering the results of the analysis, BAM is convinced that the time has come to move on to a subsequent level: it aspires to build a sustainable future in collaboration with the exhibition sector. The master plan provides a concise but motivated description of the how and why as well as of BAM's intentions and ambitions.
The general objectives of the master plan are the following: (1) a viable and future-oriented audiovisual exhibition sector; (2) a larger and lasting audience for a diverse national and international offer of audiovisual works; (3) explicit and sector-wide attention for media literacy.
This master plan also features accounts from various organizations and individuals who are active in the field of audiovisual exhibitions. They will illustrate the objectives of this plan drawing on their knowledge and experience.
