Moving Docs co-ordinator, Kyveli Short, was invited to be part of the expert group at EDN's 2017 Docs in Thessaloniki pitching forum.
Docs in Thessaloniki consists of a five-day program, where 21 selected documentary projects are developed, re-written and pitched to a panel of international financiers from leading broadcasters. The pitching session is followed by scheduled individual meetings between the pitching teams and the financiers. The meetings are for in-depth discussions about further development and possible future collaboration.
This year, EDN introduced an expert group, consisting of Elizabeth Klinck (Klinck Research), Philippe van Meerbeck (VRT) and Kyveli Short (Moving Docs). The expert group had the opportunity to have one-on-one meetings with the pitching teams, in order to help them develop their outreach strategy, optimise distribution plans and enhance audience engagement.
