- ENCANTO and TURNING RED, the latest animation hits from Disney and Pixar


- The Fresh Visions and Filmakademie Projects tracks, which provide a stage for young creatives


As a special experience, a Virtual Production Stage – powered by ARRI Solutions, disguise, Neumann&Müller Veranstaltungstechnik, ROE Visual, TrackMen and Unreal Engine – offers the audience the unique opportunity to get a hands-on experience of what it's like to shoot on a VP Stage and thus experience real-time technology up close.


The conference program is complemented by the Marketplace, which allows visitors to experience the latest innovations of industry-leading companies and start-ups. Workshops, Masterclasses and Company Suites dig even deeper into the learnings of international companies. To round things off, top-notch studios scout talent at the Recruiting Hub, and international schools present their programs and projects on the School Campus.
