The presentations and consecutive one-to-one meetings take place at Nordisk Panorama Market on Sunday 19 September 2021.
The Work-in-Progress presentations follow up on former Nordisk Panorama Forum pitches and pitches at fora around the world. All projects presented are looking for a last push to be finalised, a sales agent/distributor or festival premiere.
