10:00 to 10:30 – Opening Remarks
10:30 to 11:00 – Keynote

11:00 to 11:15 – BREAK

11:15 to 12:15 – Panel: Public Service Broadcasting in a Streaming Age
As democracy is under threat, the importance of public service is emphasized. Public service broadcasters have played an essential role in the development of local production, creative talent, and international successes. Today, legacy broadcasters around the world are struggling to reinvent themselves and make local, quality drama to compete with the offerings of high-budget SVODs. We take a closer look at how streaming has affected the creative legacy of public service broadcasting and what the future holds.
12:15 to 13:00 – Panel: Work That Travels
With the widespread rise of streaming, we see a renewed focus on local stories going global in their original form as well as remakes. We look into the pros and cons – whether we’re seeing a strengthening of local narratives or a decline in originality as everybody tries to aim for the broadest possible market. And if your work travels, how do you ensure it travels well, creatively and financially?

13:00 to 14:00 – LUNCH

14:00 to 14.45 Panel: The New Position of the Writer

Has the overall status of writers improved as more become Executive Producers and Showrunners as well? We talk to a panel of showrunners and writers about the position of the writer in the 2020’s, the skills and training required for these senior roles, how different guilds have developed the position and title for writers, and the challenges that come with increased responsibility.

14:45 to 15:30 – Panel: The Role of Streamers: Opportunities and Dangers

Streamers are changing our market, our craft, our narratives, and our working conditions. Among the opportunities for writers: more work; a key role in the creative process; high-quality narratives. Among the dangers are: uniformization of narrative and format; opaque algorithmic decision-making and limits to freedom of speech. What are we gaining and losing and how can this group of international writers, and guilds, maximize the opportunities and minimize the dangers?

15:30 to 16:00 – COFFEE AND NETWORKING

16:00 to 17:00 – Panel: Creative Freedom is Animated
Does animation provide a way around restrictions on freedom of expression? Why is that? What are the limitations?

How do we tell stories in different parts of the world after #MeToo? Has #MeToo brought improvements to writer experiences around the globe?

17:45 to 19:00 – SOCIAL EVENT

Get a drink and network before you leave DR Koncerthuset. The evening program is up to you. Hope you will enjoy Copenhagen by yourself or with colleagues.

10:00 to 10:45 – Panel: Writing for Cinema in a Post-Covid World

12:15 to 13:00 – Panel: Buyouts and Bonuses – We’re not Buying in
What is fair and proportional remuneration? What does “work made for hire” mean in relation to authorship and copyright? We look at different payment models under Guild agreements and ask leadership to suggest three important clauses for inclusion in first contracts that address money and beyond.

Keynote: Now What? The European Copyright Directive
All EU members should have transposed the key elements of the directive into national law by October 2022.

He is joined by other Guild leaders to discuss inspiring real-world examples: The WGA’s “fire your agent” campaign; the addition of streamers to Canada’s Broadcasting Act; and New Zealand’s coalition of workers in film and television who captured the attention of a new Prime Minister to gain collective bargaining rights.
