TV Beats Forum presents new drama series projects from the Nordics, Central and Eastern Europe

    TV Beats Forum, the drama-series-oriented strand of Industry@Tallinn &; Baltic Event, presents various new projects that are part of the freshly launched TV Beats co-financing market and Midpoint TV Launch.

    For the first time, TV Beats Forum presents eight series projects with international sales and distribution potential development, primarily from Baltic Sea Countries and Scandinavia as part of the TV Beats co-financing market. The selected project presenters will have the opportunity to organise meetings with financiers, partners and broadcasters. Triin Tramberg, the TV Beats Co-Financing Market Manager commented that the co-financing market selection team decided to focus on projects that have the potential to collaborate with Baltics, Russia and Scandinavia. “Each project is unique and has the potential to be shown on a wider VOD platform. The projects can be heard and viewed both physically in Tallinn and online for Industry@Tallinn &; Baltic Event accredited guests,” she adds.

    All the projects will receive feedback from the jury and from the experts of Stage32 - the educational partner of TV Beats Forum. The most promising project will be handed an award consisting of 2500 euros.
