Animation Digital Sector Evolution, Challenges and Opportunities

Indie Film and animation production and distribution were already undergoing a radical change before the global pandemic further accelerated the matters.

This panel will examine some of the latest trends, challenges and opportunities, including windows, sales and distribution, for indies and the animation sector... ranging from premium VOD, TVOD, SVOD, AVOD/FAST channels for licensing. How do animation producers and rightsholders best navigate this space, what are the opportunities for reaching wider audiences and monetization, and how has the role of distributors, sales agents, aggregators evolved and impacted this within in the mix of traditional and streaming players/devices out there?
