On May 7 I’ll be in Toronto moderating a panel on how to create, fund and distribute a web series.

Through the National Screen Institute, my colleagues and I have been working with Bite TV to plan this event which takes place at Second City.

The web series panelists include Marcia Martin senior vice president, original content at Blue Ant; Jonas Diamond, executive producer of Smiley Guy Studios and CEO at iThentic; Andra Sheffer, executive director of the Independent Production Fund; and Nathalie Clermont, director of program management for the Canada Media Fund.

After the panel discussion, three finalists from the Bite TV Web Series Competition will pitch their web series ideas. The winner gets a $10,000 development deal.

Pass on the invitation (above) to anyone you think would appreciate this afternoon event. Clicking the image will open a new email message allowing you to RSVP directly to Blue Ant.
