MeetMarket Submissions are now open!
We’re excited to open submissions for the MeetMarket, one of the world’s largest documentary and factual markets and pitching forums. Selected projects will have the opportunity to meet with top Decision Makers among 300+ international funders, broadcasters, distributors and exhibitors. The MeetMarket offers a unique way to pitch your project through carefully matchmade meetings between pitchers and Decision Makers, for creative and financial discussions.
The MeetMarket is open to all documentary makers, local and international, and we welcome submissions from established, emerging as well as first-time filmmakers. Projects can be in any form ranging from long form to series and formats.
Last year, we received over 550 entries from 64 countries, and selected 65 projects to pitch at the MeetMarket and 25 projects to pitch at the Alternate Realities Market. Over the course of two intensive days, more than 1600 match-made meetings took place in Cutlers Hall, our dedicated Marketplace venue.
We believe that no other market offers the intimacy and chance for personal connections that Doc/Fest does, and we are looking forward to reading about your projects!
To be part of the 2019 festival, submit your project via our submissions page here.
Submissions for the Alternate Realities Market will open 03 December.
If you are interested in pitching a new media project in Sheffield Doc/Fest’s marketplace in 2019, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest and we’ll let you know when the Alternate Realities Market is open for submissions.
