Panel Industry Professionals

On the 14th of September NVIFF will organize two panel discussions, we will cover two main topics:
1. How to create more diversity in the film and television industry?
2. The rise of women in the Film, TV and Music Industry?

NVIFF will also explore a number of sub-themes during the panel discussion:

1. What are the main overarching themes or trends between Europe, America, Asia and Africa?
2. Who are the most important players in the Netherlands and Asia, America and Africa that offer a platform and financing?
3. What are the joint initiatives and networks in the different regions?
4. What advice can you give to new talent?

These are some of the questions we will ask the panel members. The panel is moderated by Jan-Willem Breure and ends with a Q&A where the public is given the opportunity to ask the panel members a number of questions.
