Go Beyond Big 5 Streamers - Funders/Buyers Abroad

Date TBA

Beyond traditional buyers and funders, and beyond just the Big Guns (Netflix/Amazon types), who else is out there in the digital sector (VODs/OTTs abroad/internationally), actively buying but also funding, cofunding, prebuying, gap funding film and series? This session explores competitors (telcos, cable, pay/tv, OTTs with SVODs of their own) who either compete (multi)regionally as mainstreamers, or those which are genre-specific niche platforms focused on a dedicated theme/audience, and who buys currents, library and steps up earlier on in various Originals funding stages.
