Ed Vaizey’s speech at the Screen International Film Summit 2010 will be streamed on ScreenDaily.com later that day (Oct 13).
The UK Culture Minister will address the conference and also take questions from the audience. His remarks will come as the UK Government hasn’t yet announced its future plans for how it will support the film industry in the wake of abolishing the UK Film Council.
The keynote speaker will be StudioCanal CEO Olivier Courson.
Other topics will include building sustainable film businesses, international production hot zones, digital revenue opportunities, regional funding, the relationship between producers and distributors, and equity funding.
Speakers will include Big Talk’s Matthew Justice, Ealing’s Barnaby Thompson, Lionsgate UK’s Zygi Kamasa, Revolver’s Justin Marciano, E1’s Alex Hamilton, Optimum’s Danny Perkins, Yahoo’s Laura Chaibi, Sky Movies’ Simon Rexworthy, Film 4’s Sue Bruce-Smith, the UK Film Council’s John Woodward, and Goldcrest’s Adam Kulick.
