The Internet is a global force for growth. After few years of necessary adaptation, the creative industries are benefiting from the technological revolution and are becoming an essential asset for sustainable growth. 
According to PWC, the global revenues of online services delivering filmed content will grow by 19% in the years 2015 to 2018. In Mexico, the host country for IGF 2016, digital home video growth has been buoyant and is set to overtake the market for physical videos (DVD and Bluray) by 2017. Broadband over-the-top and streaming services will lead this evolution, with a 105.5% growth predicted in the 4 years to 2018.
This session will give voice to key players in film and TV content production and distribution, who will discuss the challenges of ensuring that the development of Internet video services benefits sustainable growth and local content production. Participants will discuss what legislative, regulatory and economic frameworks will be needed in order to ensure that the online digital evolution can be harnessed to help make local content industries sustainable and support their contribution to national and regional GDPs, job creation, innovation and cultural diversity. In particular, the session will look at the enabling role of communications regulation, rules to ensure a competitive level playing field and the role of copyright as an incentive for local film and video producers, creators and performers.
