New Immersive Summit presented by Winston Baker Set for November 9
The American Film Market (AFM®) announced today the addition of programming to spotlight immersive content and technology for the 2019 market. AFM will celebrate its 40th edition November 6-13 in Santa Monica, CA.
For the AFM's expansion into Extended Reality (XR), the Immersive Summit presented by Winston Baker will take place on November 9 at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel. The half-day Summit will be a collaborative and educational event for creatives, buyers, sellers and innovators of the XR industry. The program will include keynotes and panel discussions featuring creators, international industry experts and decision makers, to address the stages of bringing immersive content, such as virtual and augmented reality, to market.
"The rapid developments in immersive technology are creating opportunities for artists, producers and entrepreneurs," AFM Managing Director Jonathan Wolf commented. "The Immersive Summit is a perfect fit for our global participants who seek a glimpse into their future."
"As the AR/VR industry matures, it's crucial to provide a platform which supports immersive projects from development to distribution. We are honored and excited to join forces to bring our Immersive Summit series to the American Film Market," said Katherine Winston and Amy Baker, Co-Founders of Winston Baker, in a joint statement.
