    Apart from the international guests, many key figures of the Hungarian film industry have confirmed their participation. The first all-European screenplay market provides 13 writers with the opportunity to present their screen stories in front of a panel of internationally acclaimed producers during the Moveast International Film Festival in the city of Pécs between 30 September and 4 October 2007 in the hope of giving their projects a much needed professional boost. The Central European Pitch Forum is unique among the many pitching events all across the continent in that it is a story market, meaning that writers can apply without having producers attached to their projects.

    Please, help us to spread word about this unique event. You can find more informations on the selected projects in the attached document.
