ROUND TABLE PITCH & LIVE SCREENING
The International Documentary Festival in Amsterdam (IDFA) is hosting every year two major events:
- The FORUM, the international co-financing market for documentaries and Europe’s largest gathering of filmmakers, television commissioning editors, and independent documentary producers. We will be “pitching” there our project Boomtown Babylon to fellow professionals.
- DocLaB, a special festival happening during IDFA. It was created to present films, web documentaries, and installations that innovate the documentary genre. Projects are showcased in the Doc Lab Media Lounge and in cinemas during a number of special Live Screenings and events. We will be presenting our latest webdocumentary iROCK as part of the official selection during The Web Rocks, a live showcase of online and interactive music documentaries of this cutting-edge festival on Tuesday 23rd.
