IBC to have strong presence at Miptv

MUMBAI: International Broadcast Communications (IBC) has announced that it will have a strong presence at the television market Miptv. The event takes place from 11-15 April 2005 in Cannes, France.


IBC president Jon Helmrich says that regardless of local taste and social conditions, movies, celebrities and sports consistently draw huge audiences for broadcasters the world over. Focussing on those three categories, IBC will be offering international buyers proven entertainment packages during Miptv.

Helmrich will tempt buyers with 88 one-hour episodes of Midnight Movies. This documentary series examines cult films as well as their impact on pop culture and modern society. The show premieres on Starz Encore in the US this summer.

The series delves into such films as Pink Flamingos, El Topo, Rocky Horror Picture Show and Eraserhead. The series brings audiences behind the screen to speak with the actors, directors and producers who were intimately involved in the 70s cult film scene. Among the featured interviews are David Lynch and John Waters.



Another special that IBC is bringing to Cannes is Cinenews. This delivers 52 half-hour Hollywood reports direct to international outlets. The weekly reports include the latest box office reports, interviews with today’s hottest stars, red-carpet openings and all the latest happenings from the world’s movie capital.

A popular companion for these weekly reports is Famous. The top star biography series now entering its third season on A&E’s Biography channel in the US. Each episode focuses on a specific ‘mega star’, following their career path and interviewing the celebrities themselves for insight as to how they became and stay Famous. New episodes will include Oscar-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio and Oscar winners Cate Blanchett and Clint Eastwood.

IBC was founded in October 2001 by international television veteran and former HBO and E! executive Jon Helmrich. IBC clients include Chum/City TV from Toronto, Popular Arts Entertainment and The Tennis Channel in Los Angeles. These clients represent over 1000 hours of TV programming covering the world of entertainment, fashion, sports, and lifestyle.
