The US Delegation

 Sun-Tues 22-24 Sept 2019

The International Documentary Association (IDA) and Nordisk Panorama Forum partner to strengthen co-production ties between the United States and the Nordic countries.

Every year, Nordisk Panorama Forum welcomes a specially invited delegation of producers from a guest territory to facilitate connections outside the Nordic countries. This year, the IDA will lead a delegation of selected producers from the US to Nordisk Panorama Forum for Co-financing of Documentaries in Malmö, Sweden.

Most importantly the delegation producers will participate in the event Producers Meet Producers, where they will meet their Nordic colleagues, present themselves, network and outline their production landscape. They will also learn more about how to co-produce with the Nordic countries.

The delegation producers will:

  • attend the “Producers Meet Producers” networking event – on Sunday 22 September, featuring snappy presentations, tailored match-making and round table discussions.
  • be able to apply for pitching and meetings (submitting a project application by 23 May 2019)
  • get access as forum observers at this otherwise exclusively Nordic financing forum
  • get full access to festival screenings, seminars and events

Furthermore Nordisk Panorama Forum will welcome a number of commissioning editors and sales agents from the guest territory to the pitching and meeting tables.
