BUSINESS SYMPOSIUM 2016
OUT-OF-THE-BOX THINKING FOR CONTENT CREATORS
October 21, 2016

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION.
SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!

This year’s Business Symposium is intended to showcase the passionate visionaries willing to disrupt and break barriers to get content on the screen their way.

From IP to an inside look into an LA writing room, the Business Symposium will provide a full day of mind expanding knowledge including presentations on innovative technology that will change how we tell stories, to virtual production pipeline solutions.

Walk through the process of writing and directing and then winning an Academy Award for directing — a first for women. If TV is more your pace, get the ins-and-outs (and a few secrets) of a no-holds-barred LA writing room.

If you’re looking for a road map to IP success, we’ve got you covered with case studies and professional advice that will help you succeed in any platform and we’ll also be providing an updated look at distribution in Canada, the US and Europe.

THE BUSINESS OF BUILDING AN INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

VENUE:
VIFF Vancity Theatre, 1181 Seymour St. (@ Davie)

Part 1: The Business of Building an Intellectual Property
While you might have a great idea, building an Intellectual Property (IP) is as much about the execution and rights ownership as it is about the idea itself. Developing your concept — whether it be a series, toy or game — into a multi-platform brand while still maintaining control and ownership of your IP is the biggest challenge for producers of all levels. Our panel of industry leaders will present their successful properties and share their experiences all with the goal of helping you plan your path to creating a successful brand and multi-platform property.

Part 2: The Business of Building YOUR Intellectual Property
It is critical for you to have an intellectual property strategy. If not, you may be jeopardizing success in getting your creativity to the marketplace. Come prepared to take part in this interactive session that relies on YOU the audience to participate in building a case study demonstrating how to protect the integrity and financial potential of your work. Your guide for this interactive session will be Vancouver-based media lawyer and educator, Jon Festinger.
