Screen Australia will present a showcase of the hottest online talent from Down Under at the second edition of the MIP Digital Fronts – set to take place April 15-16 in the Grand Auditorium of Cannes’ Palais des Festivals, with the opening screenings on Tuesday.
Meet Nick Boshier and Connor Van Vuuren, Derek Muller, Natalie Tran and John Luc, five leading Australian content creators using open platforms to build an audience outside of the traditional system. These popular artists are reaching global viewers of a size that would be impossible solely through mainstream broadcast, and retaining complete creative freedom.
National funding agency Screen Australia recognizes that online video is arguably the most fertile ground for developing new filmmakers, and has been devising the most effective ways to support content creators on newer platforms. This session will have relevance to all those involved in the business of talent development.
