THE INAUGURAL FESTIVAL TAKES PLACE BEFORE A PACKED CROWD Honored guests included
In a time in which everybody is looking for something new and fresh: new stories, formats, talents, Italy is a fertile ground.
Italian television series, especially contents produced for TV and web, represent a growing share of the international audiovisual market.
Gomorra, The Young Pope, My Brilliant Friend, Romanzo Criminale, The Medici, Suburra, have intrigued the American and international public at large.
All the digital networks have broadened to include an international audience, generating a continuously growing demand for multi-lingual products that go beyond «English-only».
Streaming and other new, expanding platforms increasingly look for high-quality content.
The idea of a festival came about to facilitate the conversation between those who, in Italy, think, write and produce audiovisual content, with those who, internationally, distribute, are in search of ideas, and/or seek alliances for co-productions.
The festival also offers a social setting for showcasing the latest trends in smartphone and VR headset content implementation.
It will promote also a deep collaboration between international productions, host cities, the tourism industry, and Italian companies who want to successfully affirm their brands, worldwide.
The first Italian TV Festival in L.A.
