Content Funding

Panel: New programming funding and commercial production models

With the advent of AI and tech-driven content funding algorithms, the funding models for content creation across all genres are evolving fast. Increasingly the onus lies on producers to source their own production budgets. On this panel leading international content financiers discuss current global financing trends and debate whether AI, tech and private credit are leading the production funding market place, or if human decision making stills play a part?
