LOS ANGELES, May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Winston Baker, the leading global producer of entertainment finance conferences, announces its new line-up for the second half of the year after a successful series of events in Cannes, New York, Los Angeles, and the Grand Epoch City in China.
"It's been an amazing week as we just hosted 'The Women of Entertainment Finance' Brunch. This special event, sponsored by Silver Reel and Manatt, has become an increasingly important event for us in our efforts to make sure that women are globally recognized for their incredible work in this field. This year we honored Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler for their outstanding work as producers and financiers. These remarkable women are the dynamic duo behind Maven Pictures, which recently worked on Andrea Arnold's upcoming drama "American Honey," said Amy Baker, Co-Founder of Winston Baker. "Later in the day, we hosted an exceptional speaking faculty at our 7th Annual International Film Finance Forum, including Asif Kapadia and David Linde. Up next, we're off to China for our fourth annual forum with the Shanghai International Film Festival."
Winston Baker will kick off its fall lineup with a brand new event that goes beyond financing. "Many of our speakers and attendees have encouraged us to offer programming which provides more in-depth conversations about the needs of the industry from the artist and talent perspectives, so for the first time - we will be offering 'Script to Screen Summit' during the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2016 at the Fairmont Royal York. We're thrilled to be offering content that caters to both the art and the business of film, television and digital media," said Katherine Winston, Co-Founder of Winston Baker.
At the end of September, Winston Baker will be returning to Switzerland for the Zurich Summit in partnership with the Zurich Film Festival. "In its third edition, we're looking forward to adding some inspiring elements to our world-class conference at the Dolder Grand. Our summit goal, which we passionately share with Winston Baker, is to inspire the next generation of game changers in art, technology and innovation," said Karl Spoerri, Co-Founder of the Zurich Film Festival. This year, the festival has chosen film producing country Mexico to be honored as guest of its 'New World View' section.
Mexico also happens to be Winston Baker's next destination after the summit. "We are proud to host the 'Los Cabos Film Investor Summit presented by Winston Baker,' as a yearly event that strengthens our new Los Cabos Meet-Mart, boosting our strategies to introduce the best Latin American talent to the U.S. market," said Alonso Aguilar Castillo, festival director of Los Cabos International Film Festival.
Sponsors and partners of the upcoming programs include The Hollywood Reporter, IM Global, Vine Alternative Investments, EP Financial Solutions, Covington and Burling, Greenberg Traurig, Manatt, O'Melveny & Myers, and Sheppard Mullin.
