The Sheffield MeetMarket is one of the world’s largest documentary and factual markets and pitching forums, selected projects will have the opportunity to meet with top Decision Makers among 300+ international funders, broadcasters, distributors and exhibitors.
The MeetMarket offers a unique way to pitch your project through carefully matchmade meetings between pitchers and Decision Makers, for creative and financial discussions. The MeetMarket is open to all documentary makers, local and international, and we welcome submissions from established, emerging as well as first-time filmmakers.
