Nostradamus Academy - exclusive training programme for industry professionals

Nostradamus Academy is Göteborg Film Festival’s exclusive training programme for film and television industry professionals, providing new knowledge of industry changes and practical tools to build long-term sustainability.

The film industry is in rapid upheaval with changing business models, new professional roles and global players in local markets. At the same time being affected by macro-trends such as climate crisis, economic fluctuations, weakened democracies and, not least, the ongoing pandemic.

Nostradamus Academy offers high-end curated content over three sessions that give new knowledge of industry changes and practical tools to build long-term sustainability. Under qualified professional mentors and speakers, the participants will identify their professional goals, create a strategy and make a plan for the future.

Nostradamus Academy includes three sessions in February, April and June 2021.

The course is mainly targeting Western Swedish professionals but is also open to Swedish speaking industry from the rest Scandinavia.

Course leaders: Johanna Koljonen, author of the Nostradamus report, in collaboration with Bjarke Pedersen from Participation Design Agency.
Nostradamus Academy is a part of the festival’s Nostradamus initiative. Since 2013 the annual report monitors and analyses the rapid changes in the film and television industry for business models, production, distribution, content and audience behaviour. Read the annual reports here.
