The conference Let's Be Series, vol.2 | 22-23 june 2021

    Let’s Be Series, vol 2. is a two-day international event organized by Creative Europe Desk Poland in  partnership with the Polish Producers Alliance (KIPA), dedicated to the topic of new trends in the  production and distribution of European feature series. 

    The event will be held online on 22-23 June 2021.

    The dominance of the OTT services in the series market, new commissioning and distribution practices  and the widening gap between audiences of linear broadcasters and streaming platforms, have caused  significant changes in both production and consumption of TV series. During Let’s Be Series, vol. 2 conference we will discuss all those changes and look closer on what a successful collaboration  between producers and TV and digital broadcasters looks like, what are the advantages and challenges  of producing with and for streaming platforms and how to create and distribute a high quality series. 

    The event will consist of presentations, case-studies and panel discussions dedicated to the European  series. Invited experts will analyse the market, present available training opportunities and industry  events aimed at professionals in the field and talk about the funding opportunities offered by the  Creative Europe program and the European Commission. Experienced producers and filmmakers will  share their knowledge and a know-how on producing and promoting the series projects. 

    Let's Be Series vol. 2 is a second instalment of the event dedicated to trends and tendencies in the TV  series market, which was held in 2016. 

    The conference will be held in English and Polish. A simultaneous translation will be provided. Participation in the event is free of charge.
