About the Event

The independent sector has never been so lively in terms of TV drama, thanks to the growth in the demand, and in particular to the success of the streamers in European local market.

Commissioning TV Drama is flowing, occupying all aspects in the industry. This is the good news that everyone can read in the newspaper. But does it correspond to the reality?

Actually there is a hidden reverse of the medal: the contractual conditions proposed by the streamers are not spreading so much happiness… not only for producers but also directors and actors.

The US streamers are here to stay and we are happy about it, and we are all willing to have a show commissioned, but not at any price.

But how can you negotiate with these powerful giants when you are an independent ? What is your bargaining power? What are the solutions the industry is setting up to protect the independent sector? And what role can the regulators play there?

To discuss these new ways of working together at creating ambitious TV Series, whilst preserving the European savoir faire, directors, authors and producers, all representing the European independent sector will share their views in Fontainebleau at the occasion of an exclusive conference, organised by the European Producers Club with the participation of the Federation of European Screen Directors.

Speakers : Pauline Durand Vialle (FERA) Vanessa Henneman (Agent, Henneman Agency) Dariusz Jablonski (producer, Apple Film Productions) Alexandra Lebret (managing director, EPC)
