Lionsgate, Sony, Newen Join “Biggest” London Screenings
The 2023 London Screenings is shaping up to be the biggest yet as the likes of Lionsgate, Sony Pictures Television and Newen Connect join the lineup to bring the number of distributors up to 26. The third annual event now has the most distributors taking part in its short history, with hundreds of buyers invited to sample the distributor’s wares and partake in exclusive events. The news showcases the growing importance of the Screenings, which are in some senses replacing Mip TV as a must-attend market for distributors in the first few months of the year. Viaplay Content Distribution and Eccho Rights have also signed up to join a wealth of previously announced sellers along with host distributors All3Media International, Banijay Rights, Entertainment One (eOne), Fremantle and ITV Studios, with an events schedule now set. BBC Studios has at the same time moved its Liverpool Showcase down to London and will run the Showcase at the same time as the Screenings, which take place Monday 27 February to Friday 3 March. “For the 2023 edition of The London TV Screenings, our biggest yet, the group has come together like never before to curate all of the content and buyer events across the week,” said a spokeswoman. “We’ve worked hard to minimise clashes and maximise the experience for clients, many of whom are sending multiple buyers, to make it a truly must-attend event in the annual calendar.” Last year’s first in-person screenings was attended by more than 500 buyers, according to the Screenings.
