TV Series Pitch Forum

Do you have a captivating / engaging / thought provoking idea? Tell us your story – and we will not only listen but also help your dream come true!

The leading fiction concept pitch forum for CEE is returning once again. We are seeking the next great idea for a television series – without any genre restrictions. The winner will receive a prize of 10,000 EUR and their concept will be turned into a professionally produced pilot episode that can evolve later into a full tv series.

Eight Finalists will be invited to pitch their stories to an international jury of prominent representatives of the film and media industry. The forum takes place in Budapest, Hungary. Travel and hotel expenses for all Finalists will be covered by us.

So, show us some real, bold ideas and blow our socks off!
