PANEL – REBOOTING AUDIENCES: HOW TO BRING TELEVISION CLOSER TO DIGITAL AUDIENCES 

The creation of audiovisual content already goes beyond the limits of screens and formats and generates synergies: renowned influencers and youtubers who star in fictions for television channels, or feature films or for video on demand platforms, actors who give voice to video games… The transfer and coexistence of audiences today is evident in content such as “Dedicated to my ex”, a film with protagonists who come from the creation of digital content; “Gifted Love”, the first Spanish series on Facebook Watch; or “Mortal Glitch” the TV series that will soon be released on Youtube. In this live session, those responsible will discuss how this content proves that audiences are only interested in one thing: exciting, quality content.
