Le Rendez-Vous Bi@rritz will take place on https://lerendezvous.tv/ from September 6 to 8, 2021.
On the menu: Super Highlights (15-minute presentations of finished programs); pitches (three-minute pitches for projects looking for funding) followed by live Q&A sessions with international buyers; round tables; and much more!
The documentary, drama and animation genres will all be present. Super Highlights will be voted for the Board of Directors, and pitches will be chosen by a vote held among selected buyers.
We are doing everything possible to enable our members to showcase their programs in a way that is professional and optimized but also fun! This includes personalized coaching with a pitching expert, a professional shoot in Paris in a fully equipped studio, a dedicated program library in Screenopsis, and targeted communications with emails and social media posts.
