Adaptation in action

11 JAN 2021


With less than 40 days to go until the event’s 35th iteration, SCREEN FOREVER continues to deliver on world class market opportunities, today adding a Kids Publishers Market to SPA Connect.

A celebration of Australian children’s books – and the talented authors behind them - the market will showcase the hottest properties ripe for adaptation into a television series or film in 2021.

In a break from tradition, producers will find themselves on the receiving end of some fiery pitches, as a series of leading publishers and agents, moderated by Suzanne Ryan (CEO, SLR Productions), take their turns to highlight their current catalogues, give previews of upcoming titles and discuss trends in the publishing world.

Following this pitching market, delegates will then have the opportunity to network with the publishers to express interest, discuss options and exchange details to keep the conversation flowing long after the conference closes.

Already confirmed for the panel are:

This latest announcement compliments an already strong kids content lineup for the upcoming event, which also includes an online delegation of buyers from the world's leading streaming services accepting pitches at Ready, Steady, Pitch!.
