Christopher Kühne is an internationally acclaimed screenwriter and story analyst who co-wrote the award-winning feature film “Yerma: Barren,” directed by renowned Spanish poet/film director Emilio Ruiz Barrachina. As a literary manager, he collaborated with producer Ken Atchity (The Kennedy Detail, The Meg) in the development of film and TV projects.

Today he is a founding partner/president/ceo of Metan Global Entertainment Group (MGEG), a venture created to develop and distribute entertainment content and media specifically for Chinese speaking audiences in China and abroad. In 2018, the company launched the MGEG Film Fund I and serves as managing partner. He is also the executive producer on the recently announced feature film “EMPRESS.”

MGEG has also adapted popular Western TV formats for localized versions, including Go Dance! and Elite Model Search, as well as developed the original sitcom, written by Namer, Return to Da Foo Tsun and the Web series Planet Homebuddies that garnered an online audience of over seven million only one month after its launch. Metan was instrumental in joining together top China production houses Mei Tian and H&R Century TV with Warner Brothers International Television Production and the creators of Gossip Girl to develop a groundbreaking new teen drama series for China, to which Metan also served as a consultant. MGEG’s most recent series is Fashion X, a fashion-themed series for the China market, covering the top fashion weeks around the globe, as well as a new travel, cultural series that will begin filming in Croatia in October 2019.

Emily Shah, Actress, “Jungle Cry”

The young actress stars opposite award-winning Indian actor Abhay Deol. The film, which was first announced at Cannes 2019, is the former Miss New Jersey USA’s second lead in a feature, following her debut in the 2018 thriller “Fortune Defines Death.”

An ambassador for UNICEF, she has participated in national campaigns for Proactive, Motorola, T3 and Sephora, and assisted the legendary actor/director Clint Eastwood on the film Jersey Boys.

Award-winning British filmmaker Kate Rees Davies will moderate the hour-long panel. Six of her shorts have screened at Cannes and her feature film “Altered Perception” recently was released theatrically in the USA and is now available on DVD, Amazon and iTunes. She was the first independent filmmaker to shoot on 4K with the Sony F65 and as a result, has had her work distributed on the Sony 4K TV. She has several projects in various stages of development and pre-production and is currently exploring the world of VR. Her next project in development is a documentary about women in rock and roll. She also serves on the board of Women In Media, The Alliance of Women Directors and NAMIC, and is a strong advocate for creating more opportunities for women and underrepresented communities within the entertainment industry.
