Digital Media Fest 2022
Panel: “Incontro con i Web Fest Internazionali”
I webfest e i festival in generale creano un punto di partenza per una rete di comunicazione internazionale, ma ciò che ha sempre caratterizzato questi eventi è l’incontro, lo scambio di opinioni, di contatti e di idee; Durante quest’incontro con i direttori dei webfest internzionali – nello specifico di Bilbao Seriesland, con Rose Of Dolls e Oliver Mend dalla Spagna; British Web Awards con Chris Hembury dall’Inghilterra, Seoul Webfest, con Young Man Kang dalla Corea, Die Seriale con Csongor Dobrotka dalla Germania e Cusco Web Fest con Josselyn Linarez Arcos e Daniel Antelo de la Puente dal Perù – verrà discusso lo stato attuale della diffusione del prodotto webseriale nel mercato internazionale e di come i web fest favoriscano la circolazione dei prodotti web nativi.
Rifletteremo anche sulle collaborazioni e cooperazioni tra i webfest di tutto il mondo per orientare la possibilità di investimenti e mettere le basi per un futuro carico di nuove storie da raccontare.
