Global financial and film conference producer Winston Baker announced today it will host the 2nd Annual TV and Film Finance Forum Latin America on August 13.

The one-day forum will be hosted at the Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It will consist of panels, strategy sessions and case studies designed for guests to learn more about Brazil and Latin America’s growing audiovisual sector.

“It is truly amazing to have major events in Rio this year such as the World Cup and TEDGlobal and we very much look forward to hosting our second edition of the TV and Film Finance Forum with distinguished audiovisual experts from around the world,” said Sergio Sá Leitão, chief executive officer of RioFilme.

Planned discussion topics cover a broad range of financial and entertainment subjects, including “The Rise of Consumption for Latin American Content” and “Selling Across Borders on the Big and Small Screens,” among others.

High profile producers and executives from major corporations are scheduled to speak, including 20th Century Fox Latin America’s senior vice president Elie Wahba and founder of Aquarius Television Gary Pearl. Other representatives come from such international organizations as Televisa, Canana, Itaca, Bananeira and RT Features.

Winston Baker is presenting the forum with lead sponsorship from RioFilme. Variety serves as the event’s US media partner.
