Stop with the gloom and doom! Check out the Mifa Pitches 2022 and set sail to explore stories from around the world: Argentina, Ecuador, Mexico, Burkina Faso, Zimbabwe, Bosnia-Herzegovina, France, Belgium, Greece, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Georgia, China, etc.
The cruise begins for the 32 projects selected among the 472 submitted this year. To reach the dock they need you! So, pull out your diaries and quickly jot down the Pitch Sessions to meet the women and men behind these projects and let yourself be carried away, shaken, even "capsized" by one of them!
The Mifa Pitch Sessions (reservation required) will take place at the Salle de la Volière and the Salle XR@Mifa in the Exhibitors Area for the immersive experiences:
- Feature Film Pitches: Wednesday 15th June, 9:00 am to 10:30 am
