  See the 2021 Pitches Selection Online! 

Annecy is offering you the best original creation online from 14th to 19th June!

The Mifa Pitches are the unique opportunity for young international creatives to present their projects to a professional audience and be supported by them thanks to various prizes. This is also the dream opportunity for you, the producers, broadcasters, distributors and funders, to establish partnerships and be the first to position yourself on the best original creation.

Mifa Pitches

The current health context has not slowed down the 2021 submissions, with nearly 433 projects registered! Among them, 36 have been selected by our expert committees for their originality and rich storylines, among projects from around the world: France, Argentina, Brazil, Ireland, Greece, Latvia, Canada, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Indonesia, Iran, USA, Madagascar, Germany, Taiwan, Belgium, etc.

The video presentations from these young talents will be available to watch as soon as the Mifa opens. (Access with a Mifa accreditation)

In order to extend the meeting and to network, remember to use our Meet the… Talents scheme.

Comics Mifa Pitches

Launched last year, the Comics Mifa Pitches invite you to dive into the creators’ graphic universes through their free of rights’ comic books and to use their inspiration for future films! 5 works from the 9th art have been selected this year.

This scheme is supported in partnership with Lyon BD Festival, as well as the participation of 4 international festivals: Québec BD (Canada), The Lakes International Comic Art Festival (UK), la Foire du Livre de Bruxelles (Belgium), and the CairoComix Festival (Egypt).

And, in order to extend the exchange, meet the publishers associated to each comic book by using our Meet the… Publishers scheme.
