World Screen is again teaming up with Reed MIDEM to present the Factual Trendsetter Awards at MIPDoc, this year honoring National Geographic Channels’ Christian Drobnyk, France 5’s Thierry Mino and CuriosityStream’s Steve Burns.
Drobnyk, the executive VP of programming strategy and acquisitions at National Geographic Channels; Mino, the deputy head of documentaries, acquisitions and international co-productions at France 5; and Burns, the chief programming officer at CuriosityStream, will each receive a Factual Trendsetter Award at the end of the What Do Buyers & Commissioners Want? session at MIPDoc on Saturday, April 7.
This session will see the honorees discussing their commissioning, acquisition and co-production strategies in conversation with Anna Carugati, World Screen’s group editorial director.
This marks the third-annual Factual Trendsetter Awards at MIPDoc, honoring executives for bold, innovative choices in factual programming.
