ESP 2017 Awards

by March 14, 2017









The coproduction forum, as the final session of ESP 2017, will take place from the 23rd till the 26th of March 2017 in Poznan, Poland as part of the Poznan Industry Days, in the context of the Short Waves Festival, in partnership with Ad Arte and with the support of the City of Poznan.

Participants will have one day to prepare and rehearse their pitching with their tutors. The pitching, in the presence of invited professionals, will take place on the 25th of March, each project having 7 minutes – questions included. With in addition to that, specifically for the Works-in-Progress, a screening of the work-in-progress.

One-to-one meetings (20 minutes long) with professionals will start in the afternoon of the 25th, and will continue the morning after. On the evening of the 25th an award ceremony will take place, at 8pm, at Pawilon Nowa Gazownia.
