Speed Meetings

Speed Meetings: a financing and distribution market for documentary industry

Speed Meetings are DocsBarcelona’s main industry activity. It is the perfect place to promote and finance your project to potential financers and film distributors. A meeting point for professionals from all over the world.

40 projects selected for Speed Meetings will have one to one meetings of 15 minutes with financers. The Meetings will be arranged previously depending on financers and projects needs.

In 2016 35 financers from 28 countries attended and 587 meetings took place.

DocsBarcelona is a profitable investment for producers: the 60% of the projects submitted to the Industry Activities are finished and the 20% are now in production.
