LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Winston Baker invited MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe and Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (NASDAQ: HMNY) CEO Ted Farnsworth to deliver a keynote at the Entertainment Finance Forum in Los Angeles, March 2, 2018, to discuss the impact of data on the entertainment industry.
The forum topic, Data is the New Oil: How Will MoviePass Monetize It? Will feature a discussion with Lowe and Farnsworth as they share how MoviePass utilizes data, their growth-focused business model, and their plan to revitalize the movie industry. Co-Editor-in-Chief of Variety Andrew Wallenstein will serve as the discussion’s moderator.
“All eyes are on MoviePass as they continue to challenge and disrupt the movie business model. While the majority of their strategic moves have been announced via trade magazines, we wanted to give them the opportunity to join us live and in person at the Entertainment Finance Forum,” said Katherine Winston, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Winston Baker. “We hope our event will serve as a platform to meet and collaborate with industry executives face to face.”
“It is an important time to be making change in the film business,” said MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe. “We are on the precipice of a Renaissance in film, where underrepresented filmmakers can attract audiences every bit as successfully as blockbusters. Our goal is to do our part in making the entire entertainment ecosystem successful.”
“We have a real opportunity here to use data to inform the movie business about their audiences and, more importantly, to deliver real intelligence on what works and what doesn’t,” said HMNY CEO Ted Farnsworth. “We're rolling up our sleeves now and working closely with our data to understand the impact of films on audiences and to bring this intelligence to our partners in the industry.”
