Following the pandemic, Sweden’s Gothenburg Film festival launched a combined online and cinema festival, using Draken Film on the Magine Pro platform. Draken Film has since gathered data and insights from the last two years to further finetune the business model in an aim to distribute its catalogue of films to a wider audience.

Draken Film’s subscribers will have access to complementary cinema tickets to a curated selection of current releases as part of their monthly subscription offer.

Head of Draken Film, Olle Agebro said: “Hosting online events for festival films and world premieres always implies tight deadlines and challenging conditions.
