MeetMarket is Sheffield Doc/Fest's biggest pitching initiative offering matchmade meetings between documentary filmmakers and key international funders and experts who can support them. It is your opportunity to pitch new documentary, factual and interactive projects to over 270 Decision Makers, including commissioning editors, buyers, film funds, distributors, sales agents and mentors in one of the world’s top factual media marketplaces.
