Zurich Film Fest Co-Founder to Co-Launch Zurich Summit

Zurich Film Festival co-founder and artistic director Karl Spoerri and the Film Finance Forum’s Katherine Winston and Amy Baker have announced the launch of the Zurich Summit, an event designed to be a hub for entrepreneurs, leading figures and innovators from the filmed entertainment and media industries.

The Zurich Summit is meant to help foster the exchange of powerful ideas and explore new business models.

Some topics will include, “Hit Making Storytelling Across Platforms,” “Creating and Managing Blockbusters in the Digital Era” and “Brands Disrupted: The New 360° Angle.”

The summit will also feature a Game Changer Award honoring a visionary who breaks new ground while choosing to ignore convention and popular opinion.

“The Zurich Summit connects people in a unique setting within the framework of the 10th Zurich Film Festival,” said Spoerri. “We’re very much looking forward to an inspiring dialogue and collaborating on such a vital event with Winston Baker, the creators and producers of the Film Finance Forum Series.”

Participation in the Zurich Summit is limited to invited delegates and members only.

The summit takes place Sept. 27-28 at the Dolder Grand in Zurich, Switzerland.
