The selected projects will participate in the workshops that will take place in two intensive days before the forum (26th and 27th September) and in which Catherine Ulmer and Ventura Durall will once again be the tutors entrusted with providing the appropriate tools to perfect both pitching and one-to-one meetings which the producers will have on 28th September in the Kursaal Congress Centre in San Sebastián.
In addition, the panel of Commissioning Editors, more international in its scope than ever, already has the earliest confirmed attendees and will be made up of television companies, sales agents and international distributors such as EITB – Aintzane Pérez del Palomar (Co-production Commissioning Editor) // SVT – Axel Arnö (Commissioning Editor) // TREELINE DISTRIBUTION – Elena Mera Dios (International Business) // RADIO CANADA – Jean Pelletier (Senior Director-TV News Information) // LINK TV – Lorraine Hess (Programming Consultant), among others.
Over the next few weeks the parallel activities will be announced. These will take place within the same framework and will aim to bring the audience closer to the cinematographic and cultural reality of Europe. Likewise, inscriptions are open until 22nd September to attend as a member of the audience for the presentation of the projects and to meet accredited professionals from the audiovisual and cinematographic sector.
