“The expertise and creativity on show at 2022’s sold-out event was a real highlight,” said TellyCast host and event producer Crosby. “For our 2023 edition, we’re delving deeper into monetisation, brand funded digital programming and new business models. Our panels are laser-focused on providing meaningful insights for delegates, whilst ensuring plenty of time to network with digital first industry leaders. I can’t wait to welcome delegates to the BFI in November once again to provide a platform for the next generation of entertainment.”
Crosby launched the event last year. He created and hosts the industry podcast TellyCast and PR firm Boom Dialogue.
