New streaming giants have caused major shifts to the landscape of content distribution and consumption, but the US continues to be a major export territory for Australian content producers. This talk brings together US experts from the following diverse fields:
- Public Broadcasting – Theresa Navarro, VP of External Affairs, American Documentary | POV
- Sales, Financing & Distribution – Ben Braun, SVP & Director of Sales and Distribution, Submarine Entertainment
- Production – Diane Weyermann, President of Documentary Film and Television, Participant Media
- Funding – Elliott Whitton, Head of Development, Cinereach
These speakers have a long history of working with both US and international teams across documentary features and series. Here they come together to share pathways to working with them, how they’ve collaborated together, and how to negotiate the US market – arguably the strongest and most diverse in the world at present.
