Public Pitching Sessions

The projects are presented to a panel of commissioning editors and decision-makers from documentary funding institutions and leading channels in international co-productions. To be in the audience is a unique chance to observe what works and what does not work in today’s international non-fiction market.

Open to the public, within the availability of seats.

The sessions will be held in English.
