Adapting to the global health emergency, the 2020 winter sequel of the EBU Documentary Experts meeting will take place online with a brand new format. A new opportunity for EBU Members joining to either pitch the projects they have in development or to join forces and build future collaborations.

The projects to be selected are dedicated to cultural issues, current affairs or subjects related to contemporary history. The agenda will follow closer to the meeting and registrations will open as soon as the selection of the projects to be pitched is known.

Presentations and discussions followed by a pitch of the most ambitious projects, the ones everybody is looking for!

Wednesday 2 December, 14:00 to 16:00 CET
