In an article wrapping up the discussion for the print edition, Variety included select quotes from the panel.
Commenting on the film industry's quest for financing from new foreign sources as other funds dry up, Conner noted the current catchphrase that, in today's climate, "It’s Shanghai, Mumbai, Dubai or goodbye.”
