As part of this year's IBC Big Screen Experience, multiple Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Life of Pi) is set to deliver a keynote address on Monday 12th September at the IBC2016 Conference in Amsterdam.
The IBC Big Screen Experience is at the heart of the IBC2016 Conference, where more than 300 speakers are expected to attend to share insights on key issues at the heart of the entertainment, media and technology sector under the headline conference theme, "Transformation in the Digital Era: Leadership, Strategy and Creativity in Media and Entertainment.”
Julian Pinn, executive producer, IBC Big Screen Experience, said: “There is no finer keynote presenter for this year’s IBC Big Screen Experience than Ang Lee and we are very honoured to be hosting him. For over two decades, Ang Lee has shown true mastery in utilising cutting-edge science and cinematographic techniques towards his creation of some of the very finest works of cinematic story-telling art.”
Ang Lee’s Keynote will set in the context of his latest work, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk (2016). Its revolutionary new cinematographic technique not only unlocks a new level of story-telling power and emotional connection with the on-screen characters, but offers greater control over preserving artistic integrity over the increasing range of delivery formats both within cinema and to the wider electronic entertainment market.
