SERIES / SHORT SERIES PITCHING PLATFORM PROJECTS
Antalya Film Forum has introduced a new category to its program this year to reflect the growing role and importance of series in the audiovisual industry. With a brief to identify new talent, to encourage the development of original and creative content through national and international backing, and to support producers, the Series/Short Series Pitching Platform received 35 submissions in this, its inaugural year. From these, a shortlist of six projects has been produced by the selection committee, whose members included: Janka Neustupova, a Czech producer who has put her name to several successful film and television projects; Dirk Decker, a German producer, co-founder of Tamtam Film and member of the European Film Academy; and Zeynep Can, a member of the team at BluTV Dramas.
