The partners’ first annual Cross-Media Forum NYC will run on Apr 19 when project creators will get the chance to pitch their ideas to financiers and brand leaders.

The line-up includes media business leaders, funders and creative visionaries who will share pioneering ideas on how to exploit the cross-media space.

“IFP has always been seen as a conduit organisation where creative artists, industry professionals and engaged audiences around the globe can come together and collaborate,” IFP executive director Joana Vicente said.

“It is mission-critical for our organisation – and for the media sector at large – to foster community, access and creative opportunity across all platforms where great storytelling can thrive.”
