For Invited Market Guests Only

Nordisk Panorama’s Work-in-Progress presents 6 nearly finished documentary projects, almost ready to make it onto the world stage.

The projects are presented to international and Nordic decision makers in a tailor made event, created to make sure that each project benefited the most from the presentation.

The presentations are followed by consecutive one-to-one meetings in the afternoon.

The Work-in-Progress presentations follows 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 finalized, a sales agent/distributor or festival premiere.

Note! To fit the format, the documentary should have an intended premiere after Nordisk Panorama and be looking for sales agents, festival distribution, cinema distribution and/or sales.

For more information, contact Market Manager Maria Stoianova.
