For the seventh consecutive year, the Filmarket Hub platform and Festival de Sitges come together to organize Sitges Pitchbox, an international pitching event focused on feature films and series in development of horror, science fiction or fantasy. An initiative that aims to discover the best gender projects and connect them with leading companies in the industry. The event will take place virtually on October 8 and 15 as part of the Festival de Sitges. Five European series and five feature films from around the world will be selected to participate in the program. Those responsible for the selected projects will have the opportunity to make a sales pitch and meet with each of the participating companies.
As the main novelty, this edition will be complemented with the Showrunners LAB, an introductory and advisory seminar on the figure of the showrunner. The initiative, which has the support and co-organization of Europa Creativa Desk - MEDIA Catalunya, invites the five series projects selected in the Sitges Pitchbox call to participate in this laboratory.
