Formats, when perfected for a niche are considered a licence to print money- but how long can this alchemy last? The session will cover the adaptation of overseas formats to local markets. The creation of formats locally that can travel and adapt, and the challenges for distributors and producers in the new order. We discuss how consolidation, SVODS and channels launching their own platforms are changing the game and what is the future of formats?
