All selected producers will pitch their projects to a large panel of decision makers attending the event and will have the opportunity to set individual meetings. The main aim is to set up a platform where it is possible to meet funds representatives, commissioning editors, sales agents and possible co-producers from both sides of Europe.

All selected participants will compete in the “Trieste arena” to win the WEMW Development Award.

Additionally, projects will also compete for a grant for the participation in the next edition of the EAVE EUROPEAN PRODUCERS WORKSHOP.

One of this year’s novelties is the FILMMORE Talent Emerging Award, a new prize of 5.000 Euro made available by FILMMORE, one of the most prominent post-production studios in the Benelux.
