In the Main Hall of the Amsterdam Paradiso, for three days, leading independent producers as well as newcomers take turns at pitching their latest projects to an audience of broadcasters from around the world. Producers and directors pitch (possibly with the help of slides or video presentations) their projects to an audience of commissioning editors.
Each pitch is supported by the commissioning editor who has agreed in principle to back the project. The pitch can last a maximum of seven minutes and is then followed by an eight-minute question-and-answer session in which the commissioning editors discuss the project with the producer and the broadcaster committed to the film. Two moderators monitor the schedule and stimulate post-pitch discussion to advance financing.
