EDN Announces Three Online Pitching Sessions
EDN - European Documentary Network is hosting a new round of online pitching sessions. At these sessions pitching documentary projects to financiers is just one click away. The unique format features three new sessions in Fall 2016, each focusing on a different theme being youth, history and “women in opposition”.
The EDN Online Pitching Sessions offer filmmakers an easy and innovative way to enter the market and get access to international financiers. The format was introduced in 2010 and has since been an important stepping-stone for many quality documentaries.
“Meeting funders and distributors face-to-face still remains essential. When considering that this is usually time consuming and requires travelling, the EDN online pitching sessions is a smart and refreshing opportunity. I pitched twice there and got introduced to funders I didn’t know”, says Christian Popp from YUZU Productions.
EDN collaborates with a vast network of commissioning editors, sales agents and film funds in order to find the relevant financiers for projects pitched during the sessions. Therefore filmmakers receive concrete market feedback relevant to their particular ideas.
