Justin Albert, VP of production and executive producer, digital networks and advanced television, Discovery Networks U.S.
Predictions: The doc boom may be over! We will now see a greater emphasis on quality rather than quantity.
Wish list: A beach, an umbrella and a long, cold drink!
Ann Julienne, head of acquisitions and coproductions for French pubcaster La Cinquieme
Predictions: I see the future for documentaries in a healthy light in France. La Cinquieme (one of the three France Television channels) is definitely strengthening its commitment to documentaries and I believe that international coproductions of documentaries will continue to be on the rise.
Wish list: I’d like to see more projects for really strong documentary half-hours. The format still works here in France.
