M:brane Pitch Categories 2020

M:brane has hitherto concentrated on projects in development, which will stay an important part of the forum. Based on research reports for Nordic Co-Productions for Children and Youth and feedback from various Decision Makers, we believe, that there is a demand for works, that are further down the line of realisation and we look forward to welcome our new pitch category, W-I-P, for work in progress projects.

Since this particular M:brane take is a pilot, we are – in happy collaboration with Nordisk Film & TV Fond - able to invite a limited number of W-I-P’s to participate with a free team accreditation for up to two people (according by large to our pitch guidelines) and these will be selected by the M:brane 2020 Selection Committee and according to our selection criteria.

This years pitch categories includes our Main Pitch, for projects in development, RealYoung, for documentary project in development and W-I-P, for projects  that have gone into production or are in post production.
