Works-in-Progress section has been running for several years already and has proved itself as a very good tool. I am very happy that you now have a platform for promoting Czech and Slovak new production, which is a solid step to future co-production and sales.” A new collaboration between Pitch & Feedback and Baltic Event will also start this year: one project will automatically be selected to be presented at Baltic Event.
