First speakers confirmed

With anticipation we look forward to the 8th edition of our INCONTRI film conference & the side-kick event Focus! In around ten weeks, from March 22 to 24, once again about 70 decision makers from the film and TV industry will meet at Schenna Resort in South Tyrol to discuss current topics and challenges of the multiscreen landscape.

We are running at full speed putting together a lineup studded of highlights. We are thrilled to confirm as speakers Peter Kerckhoff, SVP Content at Telekom Deutschland, as well as Simon Amberger and Rafael Parente from Munich-based production company NEUESUPER who will talk about their new TV series “Acht Tage“ which is set to premiere on Sky this fall. More exciting case studies and distinguished speakers will be announced in the weeks to come.

Peter Kerckhoff straddles the two worlds of telecoms and media in his role as Vice President of content at Deutsche Telekom, and is at home in both sectors as they increasingly converge. Before joining Deutsche Telekom in 2002, he developed a thorough understanding of the media world through his role as Project Manager for Digital TV and Co-lead for Business TV at the Luxembourg-based RTL Group.

NEUESUPER  is a Munich based production company founded in 2010 by Simon Amberger, Korbinian Dufter and Rafael Parente, alumni of the University of Television and Film Munich. Apart from development of high concept TV series for the national and international market, they focus on development and production of feature films with an appeal to an international audience. Their newest series project “Acht Tage” (“Eight Days”) tells the story of the last eight days before an asteroid impact. Realistic, believable and thus all the more frightening. Hidden and familiar conflicts break out and intensify as the disaster looms.
