Abstract [en]

Film distribution is a phenomenon that has not changed in too long. This thesis aims to find out what effect a multichannel distribution system, including theatrical distribution and a simultaneous release via the Internet, can have on illegal downloading and increasing profits for the film industry in the opinion of experts in this field. The study uses a qualitative research method where semi-structured interviews with three experts in the fields of film production and distribution were conducted. Previous research on illegal downloading, alternative distribution methods for film, streaming and film production are presented in the theoretical framework. In conclusion an additional release via a streaming option premiering at the same time as in theatres was discussed and highlighted. An alternative way to get revenues is needed, but the industry is too stubborn to dare try one
