Description

Frankfurter Buchmesse is the biggest book fair in the world and most important global event for trading rights and licenses across all media boundaries. Each year it attracts 270.000 visitors, 12.000 right dealers and 10.000 journalists from 110 countries. Hundreds of books take their first steps towards the screen. The book fair initiates and supports exchange between the publishing and the film industry including pitching or networking formats and a Film Price for Best Literary Adaptations.

Objective

Since more than 16 years we are active in the film business and initiated 2006 the “Books at Berlinale” pitching event in collaboration with Berlin International Film Festival. During the Festival de Cannes we facilitate matchmaking and are present at Shoot the Book!. We seek to meet players in the adaptation business and look for partners not only for the Film-Networking-Day (Oct. 18th), formed by mico conferences, pitching events, best case studies etc. but also for coming initiatives.
