Organized in collaboration with CAA Media Finance, other high-profile execs set to attend include Vincent Maraval, President of Goodfellas; Mariano César, SVP of Content GE Content Latin America at HBO Max; Sarah Colvin, Director of Acquisitions at Neon; Liesl Copland, Executive Vice president, Content and Platform Strategy at Participant Media; Phil Hunt, CEO of Head Gear Films and Co-managing Director of Bankside Films; Fionnuala Jamison, Managing Director of MK2; and Pamela Koffler and Christine Vachon, Co-founders of Killer Films. 

Execs from The Match Factory, 30West, K&S Films, and Anonymous Content will also be in attendance. 

A detailed schedule of events will be announced by the fest on September 11. The panels, talks, and discussions will take place at San Sebastian’s famed Tabakalera Cultural Center and run alongside the fest’s Spanish Screenings: Financing & Tech, a strand of the Spanish Screenings XXL: an International market for Spanish production. 

Last year’s first Creative Investors’ Conference opened with a lively discussion between CAA’s Sutherland and Goodfellas president Marval. During the lengthy session, the pair discussed everything from streaming to the frosty relationship between the Cannes Film Festival and Netflix. 

“I think that it is not the role of a festival to select films by the way they are distributed,” Maraval said on this topic. “When you are a festival chief or selector, the way a film is going to be distributed for me is not part of the decision. Thierry Frémaux decided not to select films that are going to Netflix. I think it’s a mistake.”

San Sebastian runs Sept 22-30.
