Are you ready for FMX Day One?

News | 03.05.2022



the first hybrid edition of FMX - Film & Media Exchange kicks off today! We are so excited to finally be back on site! Yay! 🎉


Over 120 presentations on site, over 60 online sessions plus live Q&A with over 320 international speakers are on the program, waiting to be seen and heard. To make your start into this year’s conference a little easier, we selected a few highlights of FMX 2022 Day One for you. ✨


Look forward to our amazing speakers who will be LIVE on site! But: Watch out for the (VOD)-marking in the schedule, so you can better plan what presentations you can also watch at home afterwards (over 100 will be available on demand!).
