2012 Banff World Media Festival Will Be Streamed Live

The Banff World Media Festival has partnered with Ortsbo to provide live streaming coverage between June 10th and 13th of the 2012 festival. The webcasts, which will include a keynote by ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee, will be subtitled into 53 language.

"BANFF has always been an international event drawing people to Canada from around the world with our amazing sessions, keynote speeches, awards presentations and more," said Scott Benzie Director Of Marketing for the World Media Festival. "This year, in working with Ortsbo and its ‘Live & Global' streaming platform, we're able to expand our global audience even further for people that are not able to attend the festival in person but still want to experience the very best that The World Media Festival has to offer."
