Pitching du Reel 2018
April 17 - 19, 2018. Nyon, Switzerland.
Pitching du Reel is part of The Doc Outlook International Market happening during the Visions de réel festival. EDN Director Paul Pauwels will run the pre-pitch workshop and be one of the round table moderators.
Pitching du Réel will take place during the festival Visions du Réel. For the others activities at the Doc Outlook – International Market like Docs in Progress, Rough-Cut Lab, Focus Talk and others, please refer to the Visions du reel web site.
Since its creation, the purpose of Pitching du Réel is to help launch projects with artistic ambition and potential in the principal distribution markets. It is intended for young as well as experienced and acknowledged filmmakers.
Our main target is to encourage international co-productions and to help finance outstanding documentary projects addressing an international audience. We offer the participants the opportunity to discuss the content and form of their project and to find out whether the project stands a chance on the market and what market that would be. The project teams may find international partners and financing support, discuss current questions of filmmaking, foster their knowledge and use the various networking possibilities in a pleasant, relaxed environment.
Pitching du Réel is managed by Gudula Meinzolt, Head of Doc Outlook International Market at Visions du réel. EDN Director Paul Pauwels will be one of the round table moderators at Pitching du Réel while also contributing with his expertise to the pre-pitch workshop.
