6 Nordic Debute Films presented at the Co-Production MarketNordic


New Nordic Films in Haugesund will also this year take extra care of debut projects.

Among the 24 selected projects presented at the Nordic Co-Production Market, 6 films are from debuting directors and will, thanks to the Creative Europe MEDIA Desks in the Nordic countries, receive coaching on their pitches from Nordic Factory. 

On Wednesday August 24, in Maritim Hall from 08:30, each of the selected projects will present their film in 7-minutes pitches in front of an audience of film professionals, sales agents, distributors and funders. After the pitch, one-on-one meetings with relevant players are arranged for each project.

The Nordic Co-Production Market is also great place for to network, attend engaging panels and workshops and to meet up with fellow industry professionals during our lunches, dinners and social events.
