The Banff World Media Festival, which will take place from June 9 to June 12, 2024, at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel in Banff, Alberta, Canada, is set to feature two high-profile keynote speakers.

Warner Bros. Television Group chairman/CEO Channing Dungey will return to the festival as a keynote speaker, bringing his expertise and insights that shape the future of the entertainment industry. Dungey’s influence spans scripted, unscripted, and animated series for streaming platforms, cable, and broadcast networks as part of Warner Bros. TV Group.

Joining him on the lineup is Fox Entertainment CEO Rob Wade, who will be delivering a summit series keynote address. Wade’s experience in the entertainment industry has been diverse and includes stints at major networks like ABC and NBC before joining Fox in 2015.

The festival features a wide range of events including behind-the-scenes master classes with industry experts such as Jeffrey Katzenberg and Paula Kerger, over 1,200 networking opportunities with key players in the media industry such as Pearlena Igbokwe and Bela Bajaria, as well as more than 25,000 industry-related meetings between executives from around the world. This year’s festival introduces a new segment called “Soundtrack” focusing on music on screen and dives into topics such as international financing, co-production technology AI and social media. The event will still host its Rockie Awards International Program Competition and Rockies Gala which recognizes outstanding creative achievement in television programming across all genres worldwide.
