DRAMA WRITERS' PITCH
The 2019 International Call for Entries for In Development, the Cannes Drama Creative Forum, is now closed.
Co-organized by the MIPTV and CANNESERIES, the Cannes International Series Festival, In Development is the Cannes Drama Creative Forum, an event dedicated to the development and promotion of new international productions. The Forum is deisgned as an accelerator for content discovery and development, and offers the opportunity to producers and creators to fast-track new drama projects at an international level.
The Drama Writers' Pitch allows emerging or experienced writers to develop their international ambition. The objective is to highlight young talents as well as international writers based locally.
4 writers' projects have been selected by members of the In Development Advisory Board amongst a massive response of 376 submissions from 41 countries. As well as winning the opportunity to pitch a project to a high-level professional audience, the selected projects may be eligible for development funding from In Development’s Official Partners:
- Leading independent European producer, Federation Entertainment (“The Bureau”), will propose to co-develop, co-produce and distribute one of the selected projects.
- French think tank “La Fabrique des Formats” and its investment fund will offer financing for up to two series from the selection backed by a French producer or co-producer.
