dancescreen pitching session

The dancescreen Pitching Session invites film producers to pitch a project in development or a project idea to experts in dance film, broadcasting and the media industries for professional feedback, funding or co-production. Do you have a brilliant idea for a dancefilm, video or danceproject and you are searching for producers, distributors and professionals to help you further? Then submit your project!
