I’ve attended Banff World Television Festival (BWTF) for many years now and I always find lots to learn and few must attend sessions. BWTVF has just announced that NETFLIX will be honored at BANFF 2011 and Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix, will accept the award and give a feature interview and give people a chance to hear Netflix’s strategy and vision for the future.
