TV Kids will host a three-day virtual event focused on the crucial role of international partnerships for the children’s programming industry in February 2021.
Taking place from February 2 to 4, 2021, the TV Kids Festival will feature keynotes and panels with leading executives and creatives discussing the importance of alliances in producing and distributing top-notch kids’ programming today.
Highlights will include addresses from senior-level executives at kids’ channels, streaming services and distribution companies, as well as creators of hit shows. There will also be panels on windowing and financing models, acquisition strategies and co-productions, as well as a special focus on the French animation sector.
TV Kids Festival will also deliver exclusive premieres of new shows available on the global market, and will present the inaugural TV Kids Pioneer Award to an individual or company that is leading innovation in the children’s programming business. It will be streamed live and available on-demand on World Screen’s brand-new, state-of-the-art events and festivals platform, which launches next month.
“With our print and online magazine, annual guide, daily and weekly newsletters, in-demand reports and more, World Screen has assembled a powerhouse stable of platforms serving the children’s programming community,” says Ricardo Guise, the president and publisher of World Screen. “We’re thrilled to be adding the TV Kids Festival to our offerings in 2021.”
“Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, executives from across the kids’ sector reacted quickly to serve the needs of young ones stuck at home, demonstrating the resilience and ingenuity of this crucial segment of the media business,” adds Mansha Daswani, the editor of World Screen. “We’re looking forward to using the inaugural TV Kids Festival to spotlight how kids’ content producers and distributors are adapting to a fast-changing landscape while continuing to educate and entertain children across the globe.”
Several sponsorship packages, including pre-roll video spots and advertisements in the February 2021 (TV Kids Festival & Pre-Kidscreen Summit) digital edition of TV Kids and in the conference program, will be available; contact Ricardo Guise for more information.
