Tangled Bank Studios’ Michael Rosenfeld to keynote at MIPDoc
Paris – Award-winning science documentary-maker Michael Rosenfeld, Head of Television and Film at the brand new Tangled Bank Studios, will give a keynote address at MIPDoc on Saturday, April 6. The leading international screening & conference event for documentary and factual programming, MIPDoc will be held in Cannes from April 6-7, ahead of MIPTV.
In his MIPDoc address, entitled “Reinventing Science Television”, Rosenfeld will discuss how the new production company is aiming to create science films that enlighten as they entertain, and support producers who want to do the same.
Rosenfeld is a seasoned producer, writer, and television executive with extensive experience in documentary production and new media. He is heading the newly launched Tangled Bank Studios, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s US$60 million film and television initiative, set to produce up to 10 hours of science programming annually for TV, cinemas and digital media.
In a career spanning network broadcast, cable, and public television, Rosenfeld has won or led teams that have won hundreds of industry awards, including the Peabody Award and almost 40 News and Documentary Emmy Awards.
The 2013 MIPDoc conference programme will offer a rich and varied line-up of sessions and new initiatives responding to the multifaceted nature of today’s factual and documentary industry. Co-production and co-financing remain the central focuses, which will be supported through a series of workshops scheduled throughout the two-day event.
A major new initiative this year is the Commissioners’ Meet Up, which will give creators and producers a chance to showcase more than 130 projects in progress – whether they are in the early stages, in development, or actually in production.
