The Film Marketplace is now in its 5th year and has proved very successful in bringing together filmmakers with key industry gatekeepers to help get their feature length projects moving toward the market.

This year we are also including High end TV drama series ideas.

 

Applications

Please provide a synopsis of each project no longer than the specified 100 words. This synopsis, along with your company details, will be included in a handbook and made available to all decision makers at the Marketplace. (You get an opportunity to list the decision makers you would like to pitch to and through the use of the handbook, you may find that the decision makers will actively seek you out.)

 

Please note that treatments/visuals will not be included in the handbook or required for application.  Any material that supports your project may be handed over on the day at the individual meetings.

Each registration covers 1 individual.  You may bring one additional team member for a fee of £15.

 

You will have the opportunity to take THREE one-to-one meetings, lasting around 20 minutes each, to pitch an appropriate project. There’s a possibility of additional meetings if one of the decision makers seeks you out OR if there are available meeting slots on the day.
