Pitching

Through the years, our Pitching Events have led to the improvement of the quality of the projects and of storytelling for kids. The personal interaction is crucial to us – it's about chemistry.

For questions regarding Pitching, please contact Operations Manager Catherine Champagne, catherine[at]thefinancingforum.com

The Pitching System at The Financing Forum for Kids Content has these benefits for producers:

  • To launch a project and make a buzz
  • To connect to decision-makers and get your name out there
  • To get a testing ground for your presentation and trailer
  • To advance the way you understand your project and the way you communicate it
  • To learn from the feedback from our experts
  • To learn what works for the crowd
  • To meet future co-production and other partners
  • To schedule one-on-one meetings with decision-makers
  • To prepare for your next project
  • To be inspired by the visions, ideas and experimental projects of others

The pitching takes place in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in the heart of Malmö where an audience of industry professionals will participate as observers.
