Speed Meetings & Public Pitch

DOCSBARCELONA/DocsBarcelona 2018/INDUSTRY/Speed Meetings & Public Pitch

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 addition, and as a novelty, this year arrives the Public Pitch where will participate 5 of the 40 projects presented in the Speed ​​Meetings. The Public Pitch is the perfect opportunity to present your project to the financers and to the accredited professionals of DocsBarcelona.

In 2017 37 financers and 40 projects attended, and 463 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.
