Netflix will be a supporting partner of the Screen Forever producers conference in Melbourne in November.
Netflix director of content acquisition, Lauren Smith, will feature in a fireside chat before delegates.
“Netflix has transformed the playing field for producers, broadcasters and distributors and we welcome the opportunity to deeply engage with the Netflix content team in Australia,” said SPA CEO, Matthew Deaner.
“For a company that is aiming to be simultaneously local, personal, and global, the insights of our special guest executive Lauren Smith will be an invaluable insight into the future of the industry and a prime opportunity for Australian producers to understand Netflix’s global acquisition strategy.”
Smith’s recent acquisition highlights include Safe, Travelers, Trailer Park Boys, The Letdown, and the upcoming untitled Chris Lilley project.
