Distributors, sales agents and audience designers are invited to work with seasoned experts and to share their experience and ideas with peers.
Many of the invited Talents each year endeavour to launch new companies, festivals or cinema spaces. Accordingly, the Market Studio is where the hard truths about starting film-related businesses are addressed. The Studio encourages participants to understand the value of plain speaking and to provide honest assessments of what went wrong so that future projects turn out right. Unlimited access to the European Film Market also provides participants with a means to engage directly with producers and to expand their fledgling networks.
The Studio was an excellent platform for me to test out my business model and receive constructive feedback. It also afforded me the opportunity to enhance my industry contacts.Market Studio Participant, 2020
