Toronto-based Brunico Communications is launching and organizing STREAM, an event touted as being a first-of-its-kind marketplace and conference for original Internet TV programming.

The event, which will be held in Santa Monica, California on June 3 and 4 – just prior to Realscreen West – is aimed at bringing independent production companies together with development execs, media agencies, and brand managers at companies that commission and support original web content.

Brunico publishes realscreen and Kidscreen, and organizes the two publications’ successful Summit events, in Washington DC and New York respectively. It also publishes Strategy magazine and Playback, and stages events tied to those brands.

“Last year represented an amazing shift in the premium content market with the release of significant new funding for original programming from leading online and streaming video companies,” said Brunico president and CEO Russell Goldstein in a statement.

“We believe that Internet TV is altering the entertainment landscape forever, and that leading providers must invest heavily in original programming to differentiate themselves. Stream will be ground zero for the breakthrough digital-first programs of tomorrow.”

The company also disclosed the names of members of the STREAM advisory board, including Morgan Spurlock (Warrior Poets), Erin McPherson (Yahoo!), Ran Harnevo (AOL On Network), Drew Buckley (Electus) and Chris Bruss (Funny Or Die).
