i know where a little late with this post but i'm putting it up just incase someone see's it and wants to apply, the deadline is 12 midnight tonight.(Friday 4th Sept.2009)
It's an annual event called The Sheffield MeetMarket where hundreds of potential funders and buyers of documentaries meet each year, all selected titles have a good chance of being picked up and entry is free.
For the unique opportunity to pitch to, and meet with, the documentary industry's key decision-makers, apply by midnight tonight.
MeetMarket is the very successful Sheffield Doc/Fest's pitching initiative, and is designed to match documentary and cross-platform makers' innovative project ideas with UK and international buyers. 50-60% of projects will be selected. They can be at any stage from early development to rough cut, and don't need to have financing secured. Projects can be of any genre of documentary/factual from factual entertainment through to installation art documentaries. Cross-platform projects and international submissions are especially welcome.
