Don’t miss being part of the 18th edition of the Realscreen Summit in Washington DC, taking place January 31 to February 3, 2016 at the Marriott Marquis. The Realscreen Summit is the world’s foremost conference and market for the non-fiction and unscripted content industry, and the place to get deals done. The event has experienced significant growth over the last few years and will attract in the order of 2,500 buyers, creators, and distributors of factual content from all corners of the globe.

The agenda will be posted in the coming weeks, but in the meantime a few of our much-anticipated panels have been confirmed, including Changing the Script.

Just as it did in the advent of the unscripted boom, the programming pendulum has swung once again – this time, with more networks moving into scripted programming. But while scripted may be an attractive proposition both for linear TV and SVOD platforms in terms of repeatability and buzz factor, it can be an expensive one as well. As more cable nets dive into drama, there’s a need for producers skilled in accommodating “champagne tastes on a beer budget.” Here, you’ll hear from unscripted producers who have successfully made the move into scripted by using the skills they honed in reality, and from the showrunners and network executives who see the value in bringing those skills to the set.

You can register now for the entire conference, with access to provided meals and social events, for just $1,550. Add Master Classes and the rate is $1,875. The full conference and Master Class rate is $2,075, so the savings are significant!

Register online or contact Maggie Wilkins at 416-408-2300 ext 539 or mwilkins@brunico.com. Please note that this early bird rate is in effect until Friday, October 9, 2015.
