Overall Virtual Theme

The theme this year will be Shifting World, Shifting Industry: It’s been a year of unprecedented change. Covid-19 has impacted every aspect of our lives and the Black Lives Matter movement led the call for racial justice globally. Our industry is seeing a push to achieve racial equity and inclusion, both in front and behind the camera. As storytelling shifts so does distribution. EditCon 2021 will create a space to reconnect and explore the ways in which our professional lives and the industry have changed.

Partnering with Nordest Studio and their new platform Neme.TV, we are creating a unique and interactive conference experience. In addition to fantastic panels featuring both Canadian and international guests, there will be a series of breakout rooms, which are limited-capacity panels where a smaller audience allows for more intimate conversation and questions, and for tech demonstrations from industry experts. Moving beyond zooms, we’re leveraging new technologies to create unique social networking experiences. We’ll have games, raffles, and more to make this event more than just another webinar.
