The talent and entertainment are hard to miss; from Hollywood blockbusters like "Everything Everywhere All At Once" to top-rated TV shows and chart-topping music, the world is witnessing an unprecedented surge in Asian creative excellence. With a diverse array of talented Asian and Asian-American voices breaking through, audiences are experiencing dynamic, thought-provoking stories and story-telling that are empowering communities and sparking conversations. A panel drawn from both in front of and behind the camera will discuss the secrets behind this seismic shift and what it could mean for the future of the entertainment industry, businesses, and economies. Why have these movies, TV shows, and music enjoyed such wide success? How can this success and representation be sustained? What opportunities does this entertainment hot streak present for investors, production houses, talent agencies, distributors, and platforms?
