Go Beyond the Big Global Streamers - Funders/Buyers Outside the U.S.
Beyond traditional buyers and funders, and beyond U.S.-based corporate global streamers (e.g. Netflix, Amazon, Disney+), who else is out there in the digital sector (VODs/OTTs) abroad/internationally—actively buying, but also funding, co-funding, pre-buying, and gap funding film and series? This session explores which various competitors (telecoms, cable, pay/tv, OTTs with SVODs of their own) compete locally or multi-regionally with these global streamers as mainstreamers; which genre-specific / niche platforms are focused on a dedicated theme/audience; which buy new releases vs. library; and which step up in earlier funding stages to foster originals?
