I am confident that both the ITVF
and the Cyberport Macro Fund will complement the booming start-up scene in Hong Kong.
We are proud to join ITVF in recognizing the vast creative talent in the television industry and believe Vuze is the perfect platform to share that talent with the rest of the world," said Gilles BianRosa, CEO of Azureus.
As more and more entertainment moves towards the online medium, it has been our goal to ensure our pilot-makers are involved with and aware of all of the opportunities therein presented," said AJ Tesler, executive director of ITVF.
With the new partnership, DISCOP will focus on content, while ITVF will concentrate on hardware and technology.
Indeed, there is some concern that costs could increase as a consequence of the new partnership with ITVF.
VC funds, whether incorporated in Hong Kong or overseas, are welcome to apply to become co-investment partners of the ITVF
ITVF received pilot submissions from around the world.
As in past editions, ITVF featured a mix of panels and awards, focused on independent television pilots, web series, and mobile programming.
