FMX 2024: Connecting Ideas

This year’s FMX theme CONNECTING IDEAS revolves around the question: Is the Media & Entertainment community moving closer together? A growing number of sharing platforms, open standards and other initiatives have emerged recently, aiming to increase the ease, efficiency and creativity of how people cooperate.

FMX 2024 is dedicating a special focus to the connective issues between people collaborating across platforms, pipelines and distances – from interoperability to the disruptions shaking up film production.
