MeetMarket FAQs


The MeetMarket, for new documentary features and series, is now open for projects. We welcome projects in either development, production, post-production, or rough cut stage seeking partners and supporters. Thinking of applying? Please read through our Frequently Asked Questions, to help you with your application.


Can I enter the MeetMarket with a project that was selected for a previous edition? 

If it is now in rough cut stage, then yes! Alongside one-to-one project meetings, we also host a screening of the selected MeetMarket rough cut projects for industry representatives.

I already submitted my entry but a detail of my project has changed. Where can I change this? 

Email with the name of your project and the details of any changes. We can then edit this for you. 

Can I enter a project that I submitted previously but was not selected? 

Yes! Often we select projects that have entered previously but didn’t initially make it to the final slate. A lot can change in a project - maybe you have updated details, new footage, have more team members or support on board, or you might be at the next stage of the production - it’s always worth entering again. 

Do you accept entries from first time filmmakers? 

Yes - we accept entries from filmmakers of all levels. Our slate is made up of projects from debut and established filmmakers. 

Can I enter if I don’t have a trailer or footage? 

No. If you are in the concept or early stages of development, you still need to submit a video clip with your project. If you are in early stages and don’t have a video to submit, please upload a pitch deck or other visual material when completing the form.

Do you accept short films? 

Projects submitted must be feature films or series - we define a feature film as over 40 minutes in length. 

If you have any questions not answered here, please contact our Industry team

If my project is selected, is there any support available to help access visual assets for our meetings?
