Alex Miller, global head of content for Vice Media, will take part in a keynote conversation during the second edition of Realscreen London.

Since October of 2014, Miller has overseen content across Vice.com and the brand’s network of 10 award-winning digital channels, which include food channel Munchies, a joint venture with FremantleMedia; music channel Noisey; Vice News; and arts and creativity channel The Creators Project. Over the last six years, Miller managed content from Vice’s UK branch, which was named Media Company of the Year at the British Media Awards in 2014, and has also presented and produced assorted Vice news docs, reporting from Greece, Kenya, Venezuela and London. With his current position, Miller is based out of the global media brand’s Brooklyn headquarters.

With its origins as an alternative publication based out of Montreal, Vice Media has morphed into a global youth media company and content creation studio. The multimedia network includes original online video platform Vice.com; an international network of digital channels; a television and feature film production studio; a magazine; a record label; and a book-publishing division.

Vice Media has also been involved in several high-profile business ventures as of late, including a re-upped content deal with HBO extending through to 2018, A+E Networks’ purchase of a 10% stake in the company in 2014, and the creation of a Canadian content studio in partnership with Rogers Communications.

At Realscreen London, Miller will discuss Vice’s approach to engaging millennials with original video content; the intersections between news, story-telling, documentary and entertainment; and the freedoms and challenges inherent in being on the vanguard of an ever-evolving media revolution.

Realscreen London hits the UK capital on September 30 and October 1. For more information, visit london.realscreen.com.
