Who Really Wants To See Cinema Nowadays Anyway?

I had the pleasure of participating on a panel at  17th Europa Cinemas Network Conference  in Paris last month with Saskia Wazel, the policy manager for Consumer Focus UK.  What follow is Saskia's presentation "Cinema as the Essential Link Between Film and Audience" .

 Saskia used herself as a case study and did a very good job also articulating why she did not want to see most movies.  When I complemented her on her frankness, she responded:

"Someone had to tell them that they are having subsidised acid flashbacks since 1968.... it’s not real you know!"
