NEED FUNDING FOR YOUR PROJECT? PRESENT AND PITCH YOUR IDEA TO THE BEST POSSIBLE AUDIENCE!
Our Pitching program is structured in two phases:
MAIN PITCH SESSION (PUBLIC PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT)
Each selected project will be briefly presented (10 minutes) by its director and/or producer before a panel composed of commissioning editors (who are responsible for TV funding) and distributors attending the MiradasDoc Market. A brief DVD demo-reel of the project may be shown to the audience as part of the presentation (maximum duration: 3 or 4 minutes). The pitch session will be presided over by an expert moderator and will also include the active participation of decision-makers who will share information about the sort of programs that interest them, their channels’ editorial slants and their companies with filmmakers and producers.
The list of Commissioning Editors will be published very soon in this website.
ONE-TO-ONE INDIVIDUAL PITCH MEETINGS
In a second stage, each project may be individually presented to members of the panel for discussion. (between 8 to 10 minutes).
The main aims of these sessions are:
- To fund documentary projects through coproduction or pre-buy agreements to be signed with broadcasters and distributors.
- To enrich and develop project proposals with suggestions from commissioning editors following these face-to-face encounters.
During this sessions, MiradasDoc Market provides simultaneous translation services.
