Registration for the Co-Pro Pitching Sessions 2024 is now closed. Thank you for your submissions!

The Co-Pro Pitching Sessions are Series Mania Forum’s founding premise and the most anticipated part of the Forum. TV series such as Off Season, The Head, Freud or No Man’s Land were introduced for the first time during the Co-Pro Pitching Sessions.

Each year, 15 series projects seeking international financing are selected and their producers are invited to come to Lille to pitch their series to an audience of key industry decision-makers (producers, broadcasters, financiers, etc.).

A prize of 50,000 euros is given to the best project chosen by a professional jury.

The pitching sessions are followed by individual meetings with broadcasters, distributors, producers, public and private funds.
