NEW CELEBRITY HOST: Sean Cullen to deliver big laughs at our KSA ceremony
Join us as we celebrate the year’s best kids programming and broadcasting efforts at our annual Kidscreen Awards ceremony, hosted this year by renowned stand-up comedian Sean Cullen, the star of numerous comedy specials that have aired on Comedy Central, BBC America, CBC and CTV. Be sure to stay for the after-party and hang out with our winners, nominees and judges!.
Kids & binge-viewing in our keynote spotlight!
The rise of SVOD services like Netflix has triggered the evolution of a new media consumption pattern that sees viewers binge-watch a high volume of episodes of their favorite shows in a single sitting. Cultural anthropologist and renowned author Grant McCracken contends that binge-viewers don’t just mainline popular series like Game of Thrones and Mad Men—they actually inhabit the worlds of these shows and find meaning there for themselves and their families.
At Kidscreen Summit, Grant will explore how this trend is playing out in the kids space, where video services and broadcasters are burning through content as quickly as their audiences. Be sure to REGISTER NOW and then clear your schedule from 10:00am to 10:45am on Monday, February 9 to find out what it all means specifically for kids content suppliers and platforms.
Time to get in on The BIG Pitch!
Two series concepts will be chosen to compete for a top slot at The Big Make-Believe Network in a death-defying live development session called The BIG Pitch! at the end of the Summit. We're looking for creator/writer teams to present their pitches live on stage and make adjustments in real time, based on notes thrown at them by a panel of broadcast, licensing and production executives. So project submissions should not only have broadcast potential, but licensing potential as well.
Once you've registered, CLICK HERE to enter by December 20 for a chance to get your project in front of the industry at Kidscreen Summit 2014.
Finalists will be notified in early January, and the ultimate winner of The Big Pitch! will receive two passes to Kidscreen Summit 2015 and a full-page ad in Kidscreen magazine.
