Baltic Sea Forum
Baltic Sea Forum for Documentaries is a market of ideas for documentary films for all distribution platforms with international potential.
Baltic Sea Forum consists of both a pitching workshop and session. The workshop will give the participants the chance to develop their documentary projects as well as the pitch of the project. The pitching session will give the participants the opportunity to present their project to a panel of international commissioning editors followed by scheduled individual meetings with them. Projects from documentary film and TV producers from the Baltic States, Belarus, Poland, Russia, Ukraine and Georgia will be developed in a workshop run by international experienced producers and filmmakers. At the pitching session 24 projects are presented to a panel of around 16 commissioning editors from the Baltic, Nordic and European TV stations. Each project may be pitched for five minutes, with further time for discussion at the discretion of the host. Each project may be pitched by up to two representatives.
