StudioCanal CEO Anna Marsh Gives MIPTV Keynote Address for 2023

Anna Marsh, CEO of production and distribution giant StudioCanal, will deliver one of the main keynote speeches for this year’s MIPTV, the global TV market confab to be held in April in Cannes.

Marsh will address the international television industry at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes on Monday 17 April, the opening day of MIPTV 2023. Her keynote Media Mastermind discusses the increasing crossover between different media, from film to TV and online, and the opportunities for talent, storytelling and innovative commercial strategies that arise from this.

“As a European leader in film and series production and distribution, StudioCanal has a responsibility to share its content with an even wider and growing international audience,” said Marsh. “In 2023, more than ever, we want to diversify our content and create tomorrow’s successes by enhancing the significant synergies between our film and series businesses.”

StudioCanal is a major player in both the film and TV industry. The company has production facilities in France, the United Kingdom, Germany, the Benelux, Spain, Denmark, Australia and New Zealand.

The box-office performance of recent French-language releases, including Cédric Jimenez’s terrorism thriller November, starring Jean Dujardin and Anaïs Demoustier; Dance drama by Cédric Klapisch Rise; and Philippe Lacheau’s action comedy super who? — helped the company return to the number one spot among French distributors last year. Internationally, the studio is probably best known for its family films Paddington and Paddington2, or more recent English language features such as Netflix holiday movie A boy called Christmas of Maggie Smith and Henry Lawfull, or Susanna Fogel’s Sundance entry Cat person with Emilia Jones and Nicholas Braun.

On the TV side, there are highlights It’s a sin and War of the worlds, from StudioCanal’s UK subsidiaries Red Production Company and Urban Myth Films respectively; Spanish Netflix hit Cable girls from Bambu Producciones’ and historical crime series Shadow play (aka The decision) from StudioCanal’s Tandem Productions, starring Taylor Kitsch, Michael C. Hall and Tar actress Nina Hoss. StudioCanal also has interests in Benedict Cumberbatch’s production company, SunnyMarch TV, producers of Patrick Melrose, and Denmark-based SAM Productions (Ride the storm).

Born in New Zealand, Marsh first joined StudioCanal in 2008 as VP of International Sales. She rose through the ranks and became CEO in 2019. She joined the board of directors of StudioCanal parent company Canal+ Group last year and was named Canal+ Deputy CEO in October.

“StudioCanal has both film and TV at its heart and has consistently challenged the conventions around production and distribution models for each internationally,” said MIPTV Executive Director Lucy Smith, explaining this year’s choice of keynote speaker. “Anna is unique and ideally placed to help navigate the changing landscape and illustrate the opportunities within and between the two.”

From April 17 to 19, the 60th MIPTV will take place in Cannes.
