Visions of the future in the European drama industry

After a year unlike any other, a global resilience is reshaping the industry. How has the pandemic affected production and to what extent has it accelerated global transitions in the industry? Following the streaming wars, what significance will the European drama industry have in the coming years? What can we expect in terms of production, audience behaviour and public financing? What stories will audiences embrace and how have our common European storytelling changed, if at all?

Programme 2021

Honorary Guest: Susanne Bier

We are proud to present the multiple award winning Danish director and screenwriter Susanne Bier as Honorary Guest at TV Drama Vision 2021. 

Susanne Bier is one of the world’s most in-demand directors, continually breaking down barriers to tell thought-provoking and entertaining stories across feature films and TV series. She was famously the first female director to win an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and an Emmy. In this keynote interview, Bier will talk about the lessons learned in her fascinating three-decade career; how she has successfully navigated between her Danish language films such as After the Wedding and In a Better World and English language TV hits such as The Night Manager, The Undoing and the Bird Box. Bier will also share her advice for how creators can adapt to the changing content world while staying true to their own creative vision. In conversation with journalist Wendy Mitchell.

 

Next Chapter:
Looking beyond a year of change

In a dynamic keynote session Guy Bisson, Executive Director at Ampere Analysis, will look at the latest trends in global TV drama, assessing the short and long term impact of an unprecedented year of change. What impact has COVID-19 had on TV production and distribution business? How does studio direct-to-consumer streaming alter the nature of the business? And what are the trends to watch in the coming year and beyond?

Johanna Koljonen, media analyst and author of Göteborg Film Festival’s Nostradamus Report, will return to TV Drama Vision presenting a special Nostradamus TV drama keynote.
