The annual event will look at evolving models across film, television and streaming.

Filmmakers and entertainment industry executives will come together next month for discussions on changing financial structures as the media landscape evolves at the 12th annual Entertainment Finance Forum. 

The confab, presented by Winston Baker on Feb. 13 at Los Angeles' Skirball Cultural Center, will host a series of conversations on financing models between film, television and streaming.

Claire Scanlon, who directed the Netflix rom-com Set It Up and episodes of such shows as GLOW and Fresh Off the Boat, will give a keynote speech about working across different platforms, from network television to the upcoming Mapleworth Murders on Quibi.

Actor and filmmaker Thomas Jane and producer Courtney Lauren Penn, the founders of the Renegade Entertainment production banner, will also give a keynote speech about monetizing content on streaming platforms.

“This year’s speaking faculty will address viable business models, new revenue streams, sources for financing projects and enterprises, creative growth opportunities and market consolidation,” Katherine Winston and Amy Baker, founders of Winston Baker, said Thursday in a joint statement.

Key executives that will be at the forum to discuss the shifting landscapes will include Effie T. Brown, CEO of Gamechanger Films; Darrell Cross, CFO of MarVista Entertainment; Arianne Fraser, CEO of Highland Film Group; Poppy Hanks, senior vp, MACRO; Lyndsay Harding, CFO of United Talent Agency; Louis Santor, COO of Village Roadshow Entertainment Group; Vince Totino, CEO of Revolution Studios; and Mark Lebowitz, CFO of Bunim/Murray Productions.

Adam Goodman, founder of digital content studio Invisible Narratives and former president of Paramount and DreamWorks, is also set to speak, as is Marlin Prager, COO and CFO of Open Drives and former CFO of Legendary Pictures.
