Call for Projects 2020 (SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED FOR 2020)

If you’re a creative developing your own series, you’ve probably dreamt of a platform that lets you present your project to an audience of producers and commissioners.

Regardless of genre, budget, target audience or shooting language, of course, because we’re dreaming here. A platform that lets you upload a short and sweet video pitch, allows producers and commissioners to set up meetings at the click of a button, gives you two full weeks of “air time” and, needless to say, is absolutely free of charge…

This year, SERIENCAMP is making those dreams come true – by giving you PITCHPOOL, an online platform with exclusive access for producers and commissioners, featuring a selection of the finest series projects from you, our dreamy creatives. So gather them bibles and pilots for the perfect chance to be read, seen, and heard!

But PITCHPOOL is not limited to early stage projects, it is also a tool to find co-production partners, financing, distributors, broadcasters and platforms for your project to take that final step.

For more detailed info on the PITCHPOOL click here.
