Industry in Focus: What's New in Distribution?

Business Get ahead of the game, with leading documentary and factual sales agents and distributors discussing international market trends and future directions of distribution.

In a discussion lead by Fiona Gilroy, join local and international industry experts, Paul Wiegard (Co-Founder & CEO, Madman Entertainment), Anne Corsak (SVP Content Sales, North America & Global Digital Strategy, Flame Distribution) and Nick Solowski (Senior Director, International Sales & Acquisitions, Blue Ant International) to gain insider knowledge of new directions in distribution and what to expect in the future

With a focus on the rapid roll out of SVOD, AVOD and FAST channels globally alongside the consolidation of media businesses, our panel will discuss the implications of these trends on Australian documentary producers and how you can use this to your advantage. The panel will also explore how business models for distribution have evolved in recent years from simply selling completed content to being integrated into productions from inception, assisting in finding co-production partners, commissioners, presales and other production funding.
