At the latest since the coronavirus pandemic, the death of cinema has been discussed with great urgency. The closure of cinema auditoriums has not only expedited declining numbers of cinemagoers and the decoupling of film from the big screen but has also exacerbated a wound that has been festering for a long time: Why aren’t cinemas attracting larger audiences? The cause is unlikely to be a lack of interest in moving images: streaming platforms are more popular than ever before. But are the stories that people want to see being shown in the cinema? Is the ‘apparatus’ of cinema outdated? Is there a need for alternate formats to make cinema appealing to as many social groups as possible, beyond educated middle-class audiences? This panel will include cinematographers and specialists who have attempted strategies to reach the broadest potential audience.
