Wildlife Film Festival Rotterdam hosts a Film Matchmaking Event in the afternoon where a selection of organisations will pitch their idea for a film or documentary. You will have the opportunity to connect with them directly during the networking event.

In collaboration with Future For Nature Foundation and IUCN we organise a Film Matchmaking Event to connect filmmakers with nature organisations. Nature organisations have stories that need to be told, but most of them struggle to find the right participations to help them make their story into a film of documentary. During the event four international organisations will pitch their story for a film in front of an audience. The audience will challenge the pitch and give feedback. After the pitch we will move to the foyer where interested filmmakers get the chance to get in touch with their network and discuss further opportunities.

During the event there will be a short presentation on ‘How to finance a wildlife film’ hosted by filmmaker Cees van Kempen.

If you want to join the Film Matchmaking Event please register for accreditation.
