INDUSTRY PANELS 2017

This year’s edition of Finnish Film Affair will feature two expert industry panels that will pull back the curtain on the international media business and reveal the best opportunities for Finnish filmmakers. The first panel will present up-to-the-minute information from the most prominent streaming and VOD companies, including what they are looking for and how they like to work with producers and directors. The second panel will include internationally recognized agents and managers who will share step-by-step plans for how to work best with talent representatives. The panels are moderated by Adam Leipzig.

In this panel, industry experts share up-to-the-minute insights on the most prominent streaming and VOD companies, including case studies, transaction examples, what they are looking for, and how they like to work with producers and directors.
