IFC Films president Arianna Bocco, Magnolia Pictures EVP Dori Begley and Neon president of distribution Elissa Federoff will discuss the challenges of the US market and what they are looking for from international producers at the upcoming Restart Conference (May 18-20).

The live panel, chaired by Screen International Americas editor Jeremy Kay, will take place online at 5pm BST (9am PST) on May 19.

After a year that has forced distributors to adapt like never before, the panel will also expand on how US indies have had to customise release models, compete with deep-pocketed streamers, and build compelling cases for theatrical distribution.

Organised by Media Business Insight (MBI), publisher of Screen and Broadcast, the three-day virtual industry conference will see a number of sessions discussing the impact of the pandemic on the industry and how it can move forward, successfully navigating its way into the future.

The conference is free to attend for subscribers of MBI’s leading media brands: Screen international, Broadcast, KFTV, Broadcast Intelligence, Commissioners Index and Production Intelligence.
