NATO and CinemaCon offer programming geared specifically toward the international cinema community. The goal is to provide greater interest and value to all of NATO’s International member companies, and highlight the trends and achievements of global exhibition. CinemaCon’s International Day strives to create a platform for creative discussion pertinent to the worldwide industry.


The NATO International Committee meets bi-annually, in the spring for CinemaCon, and in the fall for the Annual Board Meeting/Fall Summit.
