Workshop and pitching for projects that focus on stories in Africa or Latin America, or are produced and carried out at least in one of these regions.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR FUNDING FOR YOUR PROJECT? PRESENT IT AT THE MIRADASDOC PROFESSIONAL FORUM!
Our Pitching programme is organised into 3 phases:
DOCSUR lab: 3-day long pitching workshop with the expert-consultant Stephanie Lukowicz.
PITCH SESSION (PUBLIC PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT)
The director and/or producer of each selected project will make a brief 7 minute presentation to the panel of Commissioning Editors, distributors, festivals, and public and private film institutions. We recommend showing a demo or trailer of the project during the presentation three minutes long, maximum.
Afterwards, the international professional guests will give their feedback of the presentation and will actively participate in the debate. This will be supervised by the moderator-facilitator, sharing information with the selected documentary filmmakers about their interest as regards programming their channels.
The second phase is an opportunity for each project to be presented and discussed on an individual basis with the different members of the panel of distributors, Commissioning Editors and directors of the festivals in meetings lasting approximately 10 minutes.
These sessions seek the following objectives:
To finance documentary projects through co-production or pre-purchasing agreements with the representatives of the channels or distributing companies.
To enrich and develop the proposals through personal, face-to-face meetings with the Commissioning Editors and Festivals.
