Emerging Global Markets panel May 19th

Buffalo 8 Management





JJD Consultancy and Buffalo 8 Speakers Bureau  in partnership with The Hollywood Reporter, are unveiling the panel lineup and topic for their annual think tank conversation in Cannes on May 19 that will feature a variety of global power brokers and change agents.

This year's event takes place at The Members Club. La Plage Royale, La Croisette in Cannes 10:30am-12noon.

The invite-only panel will be introduced by Alex Ritman of The Hollywood Reporter and moderated by  producer Steven Adams, partner Buffalo 8 Productions.




The conversation will address: Opportunities in Emerging Global Markets: The New Gold Rush

The analytics show that markets in Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East are poised to become dominant players on the world stage. This panel will explore the growth and impact of this shift, as the current western push for "diversity" will increasingly become a business necessity. Executives who are successfully navigating these uncharted waters will discuss their current strategies, what content works in their markets, what is exporting, and their future plans.


This year's speakers include:

Gerren Crochet - Feature Film Packaging agent, Gersh

Nandita Das -  Award winning Indian actress/filmmaker

Alaa Karkouti - Co-founder at MAD Solutions -  Top Middle Eastern Film Analyst

Kilian Kerwin - President of Production at Ivanhoe Films - US based film  company focusing on productions in India, South Korea, and China

Inya Lawal - Founder at Ascend Talent Management - represents Pan African Talent, Directors, and Producers.

Miguel Mier - Global COO at Cinépolis -  Mexico's largest theater chain which also owns theaters in India.

The session will also examine the role of "Big Data" in this expansion, the connections between countries and hear our expert's predictions on the impact of these changes on content. The venue is La Plage Royale Members Club, La Croisette, Cannes.
