IBC looks to next-generation talent

AMSTERDAM — The IBC2015 Rising Stars Program (www.ibc.org/RisingStars) offers a new generation of students and young professionals the chance to experience the realities of the electronic media and entertainment industry. The program offers free entry to the fourteen exhibition halls, as well as access to conference sessions that look at the topics that matter to young professionals. In addition, the program offers exclusive networking opportunities and an invitation to the IBC Hackfest party.

Some of the highlights of the Rising Stars 2015 program include:

Vice News the ‘News in a Flash’ Session:
News delivery and consumption is changing dramatically and companies that redefine news as we know it will talk about how they experiment and innovate to create and deliver content that attracts audiences, enhances user experience and increases engagement. From VICE - the largest youth media company in the world - Head of Content and Creative Director of VICE Media Benelux, Perre van den Brink, will lead the discussion.

Craft Skills Masterclass with Scot Barbour:
From concept to camera, light to lens, and stream to screen, delegates have the chance to learn a vast array of methods and mediums from filmmaker Scot Barbour.

Digital Creators - The New Mainstream:
As online stars are becoming more popular than mainstream celebrities, there is a growing demand for digital creators. The most popular can earn millions of dollars. In this exciting session Dutch YouTube stars David Harms and Nikkie de Jager explain their daily routines and share tips on creating content that wins subscribers.

Delegates also get access to What Caught My Eye sessions; Saturday and Sunday keynotes; the IBC Big Screen Experience and the latest blockbuster films; the IBC Future Zone, IBC Drone Zone, IBC Hackfest party and the IBC Awards Ceremony. There is also the option to join the Touch & Connect Online Community, where Rising Stars can have an expanding online presence within the electronic media and entertainment industry.
