New section: Project Pool

photo credit: Wojciech Chrubasik

This year we are giving extra space to approx. 10 projects at different stages of development and production. Each project will have its own table for 1:1 meetings in a special area at our forum. This allows producers to invite experts to their table and schedule meetings with potential partners. Don’t wait! First-come, first-served! The call is open! 

Projects shortlisted for the Project Pool will have visibility on the Young Horizons Industry website, event platform, and in online catalogue. As an additional promotion, producers of qualified projects will be able to record a 1-minute elevator pitch, which will be available to watch by guests on the event platform and promoted to the experts attending the forum.

Note: Projects qualified for the Project Pool will not be presented on stage during pitching.
