Today was our first day at The Forum, a financing meeting organized by IDFA, the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam. The event runs parallel to the festival for three days, during which a select amount of projects in production are presented to over a hundred broadcasters. We are one of 26 films which “pitch” in the central space. Tomorrow is our day (around 10.30AM, fingers crossed!) and in the afternoon we’ll have a bunch of one-to-one meetings with TV stations from a variety of countries.
It’s a real honor and quite a big deal to be selected for this event. And needless to say, I’m chuffed. We had a few meetings already today, and certain questions which came up because of the trailer we’re showing have helped us re-focus a little for the presentation.
I’ll write tomorrow to report on how everything went.
