1:30 pm - 2:30 pm New Media Rights:  New and Emerging Digital Distribution Platforms for Films and TV Productions

Speaker:  David Zitzerman, Partner, Goodmans LLP

This session will cover:

As the delivery paradigm continues to shift from physical to digital, how are new media rights figuring into traditional deal structures (record deals, broadcast licences, film distribution, talent agreements, video games and more)? How is the digital revolution likely to change entertainment and financing strategies? What is the demand for various types, lengths, genres and formats of content? Can film financing really be obtained using digital distribution? This expert panel will consider these questions and more, while providing an update on the newest available digital platforms and new technologies.
