Documentary pitching of the B2B Doc Launch Pad as part of the industry section of the Molodist Film Festival
Baltic to Black Sea Documentary Network is arranging B2B Doc Launch Pad pitching in the framework of the 50th «Molodist» KIFF industry program.
B2B Doc Launch Pad will present 12 documentary film projects in development and production stages from Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia. All projects are being developed within the B2B Doc programme. The panel of decision-makers will consist of established European documentary producers, who are looking for the stories from the post-Soviet countries for co-production, sales agents and distributors, commissioning editors from TV channels, representatives of film funds, festivals’ programmers as well as outreach and impact producers from Europe.
The pitching will consist of project presentations for the panel of decision-makers, followed by one-on-one meetings between the filmmakers and the industry professionals. The B2B Doc Launch Pad pitching is open for all accredited festival participants and guests, except the one-on-one meetings, which will be closed for public audience.
