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 presentation 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 apply with more than one project?

Yes but we would limit to a producer/director having a maximum of 2 projects selected for the MeetMarket. 

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

You do need to submit a video clip and we highly recommend it is from the current project. However, if you are in early stages of development, and you do not have footage, please submit an example of previous work. 

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

Do you offer discounts or waivers? 

Discounts are available for DAC listed ODA recipient countries. If you are applying from a country on this list, please get in touch with our team before submitting your application. 

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