The Producers’ Pitch is one of the highlights of Nordic Talents, organised fully-online this year by Nordisk Film & TV Fond, September 8-9.
The informal session where selected producers present their company and what they’re looking for, is a reverse exercise of the main Pitch Competition from graduation film students. Among the new heavyweights taking centre stage are Aurora Studios, Finnish production, financing and distribution group, and Iceland’s powerhouse Sagafilm.
The Producers’ Pitch will be moderated by Noemi Ferrer, DR Sales Executive Director.
The full Producers’ Pitch line up is the following:
To facilitate networking opportunities, Nordisk Film & TV Fond has joined forces this year with matchmaker Amila Cirkinagic who will run the meet-up in the platform Airmeet’s Social lounge.
Following the Producers’ Pitch, two 20-minute sessions of round-tables will be open for talents and industry professionals, eager to discuss a relevant topic or share their expertise. A playful speed-dating session will round off the networking part of the event.
Registered participants will receive more information on how to create their Airmeet-profile closer to the event. An overview of the topics and round-tables will be made available prior to the event.
