Digital platforms and content companies including YouTube, Vice, and Maker Studios will be in Cannes for the MIP Digital Fronts.
They will be joined by Dailymotion, AwesomenessTV, Collective Digital Studio, Machinima, New Form Digital, Screen Australia, and Vox Media at the second version of the event, which sees digital specialists showcase their wares.
Screenings will start on the afternoon of the Tuesday of MIP week, with the main sessions taking place on Wednesday and Thursday (15-16 April) in the grand auditorium in the Palais.
The Digital Fronts will run alongside MIP Digital Talks, a digital-skewed conference strand looking and creating, distributing and monetising digital content.
The fact that our original MIP Digital Fronts partners are returning in year two and have been joined by other leading multi-platform creator networks, underlines the growing importance of the global stage for original online content and the need to create bridges with the broader entertainment ecosystem,” said Laurine Garaude (pictured), director of television at Reed Midem.
