As more and more films are made digitally and released online, many schools and studios are struggling to keep up with the pace of digital technology and the changes to how films are marketed.
That’s the conclusion of a new report from the Canadian Film School Association (CFSAA).
The report is based on a survey conducted by CFSAA for its 2014-15 Annual Report.
The results of the survey show that just over half of the CFSIA’s 35,000 students say they don’t use digital devices and more than half of students surveyed are not using a tablet or smartphone.
This is in contrast to the past, when most students said they had used a digital device or a tablet at some point in their lives.
In addition, more than two-thirds of respondents said they would not go to the movies with their parents, a sentiment that was shared by students across the board.
“There are definitely some who don’t want to go to see films, and that is a concern,” said CFSMA president, Michael MacGregor.
“I think the real question that we have to ask ourselves is whether the students that do have that kind of device or tablet, are they learning how to use it effectively?”
The report comes at a time when digital distribution is becoming more mainstream.
In the U.S., for instance, Netflix has started to offer movies to consumers at the same time it’s also expanding its streaming service to U.K. customers.
In Canada, Netflix is the only major streaming service that offers films online.
While many schools have begun to offer online screenings, it is not the only way to view films.
Many schools have already begun offering online screenings to students in an effort to get more students to come see films.
This year, for example, the CFASA has introduced the “Videos to Watch” program to encourage students to watch films on their computers and tablets.
But MacGregory said it’s important for schools to be aware of how they can adapt to the changes in technology.
“I think it’s a bit of a Catch-22, if you look at a school like mine, where there are some very talented, creative people, and I’m sure we’re a small school, but there are lots of other school-aged people, that maybe have to do the same things,” he said.
“So we need to be mindful of how we can accommodate the different modes of access that we offer, and how we’re going to have a very flexible system of access.”
The CFAAA has been monitoring the trends in the film industry over the past few years.
In 2016, the group released a report entitled The Digital Cinema Report.
That report showed that the U and U.W. film markets are now in the midst of a digital revolution.
In fact, more people are watching films online than in the past.
MacGregor said he believes that as the digital revolution continues, schools are starting to see how the films they have are going to be consumed digitally.
“If you look across the U, the films that are coming out of the U are not necessarily being shown in theatres, but they’re going online, so there’s a lot of potential for that,” he explained.
“What we’re seeing now is, with the digital, there’s really a lot more competition for the students, and it’s exciting for schools because it’s not only going to benefit the students but it’s going to open up a lot, because there are so many other ways for students to access these kinds of films.”
