BEYOND THE BIG SCREEN: 
THE FUTURE OF STORYTELLING IN HOLLYWOOD 
Friday, June 24, 11:00 AM 

The creators of Hollywood tales have mastered the art of storytelling. Yet is the Hollywood model in need of transformation? Disrupters like Amazon and Netflix have changed the way series and films are produced, consumed and shared, while startups like Screening Room propose to cut out the traditional movie theater experience all together by bringing new releases straight to your living room. Social media is creating stars overnight and films are being watched on more screens than ever imagined.

The connection between Hollywood and Madison Avenue spans decades, as some of the greatest ads of all time were made by Hollywood producers. But what does the future look like for this bridge between entertainment and advertising? To take a deeper look at the future of Hollywood and inspiring audiences beyond the big screen, alongside Maurice Lévy, is one of Hollywood's most awarded producers, Harvey Weinstein. 

But don't worry, even if you can't make it to the seminar, you can vote to watch it live - Cannes Lions selects one seminar per day to be live streamed on the Cannes Lions website.
