Analyst Review

The widespread lockdown and stringent regulations across the nations have caused perilous impact on the motion picture industry. The industry has seen colossal losses owing to cancellations and postponements of film screenings, productions and promotions due to physical distancing measures and travel restrictions. However, the film industry is expected to rebound with easing of restrictions across the world. Productions of films are now taking place with new COVID-19 protocols in place, including personal protective equipment for the crew, physical distancing on sets. The government across countries are providing financial assistance to the industry, however restoring consumer confidence in watching films at theatres remains a major challenge for the engaged players. The film industry has been reshaped during the pandemic with the emergence of the OTT service providers. Enriched experience combining quality content with new technology will provide cutting edge to the highly competitive film industry.
