Conecta FICTION to Spotlight the U.S.


The United States, and notably the U.S. Hispanic market, will be the country focus of the American Country program at Conecta FICTION’s fourth edition.

Conecta FICTION will have the cooperation and support of different organizations and entities that represent and promote the interests of producers and talent in the U.S., as well as leading Latino media organization in the country. The Conecta FICTION conference program will feature sessions and talks on the evolution of the TV series industry in the last five years in the U.S., the importance of the bilingual community and their preferences and the mixing of those two cultures in the content industry, among other topics focused on co-production with the U.S.

The event will offer also an overview of the U.S. talent agents’ roles, identifying the biggest players, with a special interest in those who are most open to taking on international clients.

Conecta FICTION will be held at the Baluarte Convention Center in Pamplona-Iruña, Navarre, Spain, from June 22 to 25.

Géraldine Gonard, director of Conecta FICTION, said: “U.S. Hispanic television, and the drama production sector, have a special place within Conecta FICTION, having taken part in the event every year since its first edition, bringing their latest content and projects to our business and networking platform. The main operators in the U.S. Latino community have already confirmed their participation in June.”
