SØRFOND Pitching Forum October 14th – 16th 2013

The Films From the South Foundation organises the SØRFOND Pitching Forum in connection with the annual Films from the South festival in October in Oslo, Norway.

The purpose of the SØRFOND Pitching Forum is to give potential main producers the opportunity to present their projects to potential Norwegian minority producers, with a view to enter into a co-production agreement and apply for support from SØRFOND.

This year, 12 international film projects will be pitched for Norwegian producers.

The projects have been selected among 143 submitted applications by a jury consisting of Tone Johnsen, Torstein Nybø and Helga Fjordholm. The aim is to join in co-production in order to apply for funding through SØRFOND.

The forum takes place at Filmens Hus, Oslo on October 16th from 9.30AM to 5PM. At 5PM everyone is invited to tapas and mingling at Thon Hotel Panorama.
Moderators are Silje Riise Næss and Kalle Løchen.
Price: NOK 250 (for lunch and tapas).

The Pitching Forum is arranged by the foundation Films From the South and the Norwegian Film Institute.

Registration for Norwegian producers can be found by clicking here.

If you are not a Norwegian producer, but would like to attend the Pitching Forum, please send a request to sorfond@filmfrasor.no
