FRIDAY 16:30–17:30

The Act (and Art) of The Doc Documentary and non-fiction filmmaking is at a crossroads. While television broadcasters scale back their doc budgets, cinematic documentaries continue to enjoy critical and commercial success. While the audience for excellent non-fiction is out there, bridging the financial gap between idea and finished film has never been more difficult. Artistically, however, documentaries have arguably never been stronger. New docs – from the Oscar-nominated “The Act of Killing” to the ambitious 3-D project “Cathedrals of Culture” to U.S. studio efforts such as “Chimpanzee” – are pushing the artistic limits of the non-fiction form, escaping the documentary niche and appealing to a wider audience. MODERATOR Scott Roxborough THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

SATURDAY 16:30–17:30

Producers’ Lessons Learned Producers, quite simply, are the unsung heroes who get films made. We talk to some of the top producers working across the globe today about the secrets to their successes, and the lessons they have learned from the bumps along the way. Hear practical advice about navigating finance, packaging, creative differences and on-set dramas from these producers still active on the frontlines of filmmaking. Get the experts’ first-hand advice that every up-and-coming producer should hear – as well as guidance on how producers can best work with directors, actors, financiers, sales companies, festivals and distributors. MODERATOR Wendy Mitchell SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

SUNDAY 16:30–17:30

New film sales opportunities in fast-moving Asia Unlike Europe, Asia’s theatrical markets are growing. But the key to unlocking film sales potential in the region is understanding that the region is very far from homogenous: China led the way last year with 28% growth at the box office. If China imposes import controls, but with growing copyright protection it offers significant new opportunities through video and TV sales. South Korea saw film imports leap by 50% in 2013, while local films squeezed Hollywood. Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia are being galvanized by cinema building. But what do audiences want to watch? This seminar will not only look at the sales and distribution strategies for exporting film to Asia, it will also look at the diverse strategies required. MODERATOR Patrick Frater VARIETY

MONDAY 15:30–17:00

The Changing Market Content everywhere, anytime and on every device is finally a reality; due to technical progress, we see radical changes in media content and platforms. The number of TV stations and online platforms is increasing, creating demand for both original and acquired content. The definitions of media categories are eroding. The traditional value chain is outdated: TV series find their way into film festivals, online content is sold on global TV markets, live events are screened in cinemas worldwide, premieres become online events. The film industry is chasing the constantly changing market conditions and consumer needs, in order to secure its sustainability. MODERATOR Michele Ohayon DIAMOND LANE FILMS

Panel discusssions followed by networking drinks.
