Since its creation, the purpose of Pitching du Réel is to help launch feature film projects with artistic ambition and potential in the principal distribution markets. It is intended for young as well as experienced and acknowledged filmmakers. We offer the participants the opportunity to discuss the content and form of their project and to find out whether the project stands a chance on the market and what market that would be. 15 projects are presented publicly and then discussed in round-table sessions and in one-to-one meetings. The round-table discussions take place in the presence of professionals including commissioning editors, producers, and distributors active in national and international markets or in digital promotion, as well as public and private financing institutions.
