The Stern School of Business, EMT Program, is offering a master class in Global Cinema to be taught at the Cannes Film Festival in France. The course will take place primarily in Cannes in May (dates to be determined each year) with three lectures at Stern before the Festival. These lectures will provide preparation for the intensity of the Festival, framework and analysis of the global market, the goals of the producers and attendees at the festivals, the understanding needed to maximize the learning during the intensive week in Cannes, and the development of teams for four important academic assignments which will further prepare the students. There will be at least one set of team presentations in NYC. While in France, the students will have lectures in the mornings on film development, financing, budgeting, supplementary revenues, distribution, foreign sales, marketing, exhibition, re-purposing, etc. from the faculty and industry guests. We will also discuss the value/importance of critics versus on-line recommendations, the need for joint ventures, and the impact of digital technology. On most afternoons, we will attend panels sponsored by film companies, international film organizations and industry magazines.
