10 JUNE 2016 / Kingston Upon Thames, United Kingdom
This year’s IMZ dancescreen pitching session takes place during FRAME: The London Dance Film Festival, which is hosted by BalletBoyz. The dancescreen Pitch is an exceptional, very much appreciated format for project development. It gives artists and filmmakers the opportunity to present their project in front of a jury which consists of experts and decision-makers coming from the dance, film and media industry. It creates space for networking, discussions and negotiation as well as the possibility for coproducing the pitched project.
