Maiden Alley Cinema executive director Landee Bryant is representing Paducah at Europa Cinemas Audience Development & Innovation Lab this weekend in the UNESCO Creative City of Bologna, Italy.

The lab is taking place during the Il Cinema Ritrovato Film Festival, which is dedicated to "rediscovering lost or forgotten cinema" and serves as an opportunity for cinema professionals to share thinking and solutions on audience development.

"At Maiden Alley Cinema, we strive to be a home for cinephiles and filmmakers alike, we hope to create cross-culture awareness visual literacy and always promote filmmaking as an artform," Bryant said. "Being invited to join this lab is a thrilling opportunity to learn from innovators in film around the world and continue to build programming and cultural opportunities in Paducah."

Bryant is able to participate through involvement with the Art House Convergence and sponsorship through the Europa Cinemas Exchange Program.
