The IDFA Forum 2013 will take place from November 25-27. The deadline for project submission is September 1, 2013.
During the three days of the IDFA Forum, approximately 50 independent producer/director teams pitch their projects (selected in advance by Forum doc experts) within different pitch set-ups determined by subject matter, stage of financing and stage of development.
Broadcasters, co-producers, distributors, film funds and sales agents identify, isolate and invest in the creative documentary at the Forum.
The public pitch formats consist of the traditional Central Pitches and the more intimate Round Table Pitches. Approximately 20 Central Pitch projects and 25 Round Table Pitch projects are selected each year. The Forum organises a further 600 one-on-one meetings between filmmaking teams and parties who express a strong interest in their project.
