NEXT CREATORS MASTER CLASS

“THERE WILL BE SCREENS”

The NEXT CREATORS MASTER CLASS will bring together leading industry experts with a selected group of online video creators and digital entrepreneurs to take a deep dive into the creative as well as the commercial aspects of the vastly growing online video business.

Under the theme ‘There Will Be Screens’, the programme targets a new generation of online filmmakers, comedians and artists with an established online channel who work across platforms and are determined to grow their fan-base nationally and internationally.

Supported by Film- und Medienstiftung NRW and in collaboration with the EMC & UFA LABS, the inaugural 2-day event will be hosted in Cologne on September 11-12 and tie-in with dmexco, the global annual digital expo and innovation conference.
