AG Verleih e.V. – association of independent German film distributors
Supported by:
Film- und Medienstiftung NRW GmbH


Up to 25 feature-length film projects will be selected to present first scenes to the attending group of international buyers, distributors, festival programmers, financiers as well as other key decision makers and experts to give them an ahead of the game look and to find complementary partners in their final stage of production.


Who can submit?
Eligible are high-profile feature-length films or co-productions in production or post-production with at least one European country involved and an international market potential. Fiction, documentary and animation films can be submitted, whereas the focus is on narrative film.


By the time of the pitch, a sequence from your already shot material will be required that adequately represents your film. Each presentation is scheduled for a max. of 15 minutes including the film excerpt(s) and a Q&A.

The submitted material can, of course, differ from the material presented.

Besides the many informal networking opportunities, we will assist in arranging individual one-to-one meetings to make your participation as impactful as possible.

Once your project is invited, we will participate in the costs for your traveling and, of course, take care of your accommodation.
