The Event Cinema Association’s (ECA) annual Slate Day – now its sixth year – will take place on Thursday 26th January at Empire Cinema, Walthamstow in London.

With a stellar line up of presentations already confirmed from Trafalgar Releasing, Piece of Magic Entertainment, Pathe Live, Nexo Digital, Version Digital, Exhibition on Screen, Altitude, Generation Media, Fathom Events, Iconic Releasing, Compassionate Films and Anime Ltd.  Resident event cinema box office guru, Luke Williams from Comscore, will be providing an international review of the 2022 market and will be taking some time to look back at over the last ten years.

We will also see the return of the ECA Awards, where the ECA will recognise the top performing global titles from 2022 for the following genres: Opera, Concert, Theatre, Anime and Pre-school, which will be determined by global box office. The latter two being two news categories for Slate Day. Alongside these there will be the popular ‘Highly Commended’ event of 2022, to recognise a standout event that was unique and successful outside of box office takings. The event is also an opportunity to look back at the last ten years of the Association and event cinema. We have decided to aptly limit the awards to ten. Whilst half are based on box office, we are calling upon all across the industry to help us choose worthy winners for the other categories – our  ‘people’s choice awards’.
