The Pixel Market is an event dedicated to showcasing and financing cross-media projects from around the world. It takes place on October 12 & 13 part of Power to the Pixel’s annual Cross-Media Forum.
The Pixel Market will introduce 25 cross-media project producers to top international financiers, commissioners, tech companies, online portals and media companies during the two-day event. Up to 8 of the 25 selected teams will compete for the £6,000 Arte Pixel Pitch Prize. Teams in competition will present their cross-media project to a selected roundtable of international jurors.
The second day of the market on 13 October will offer one-to-one business meetings to the 25 project teams with potential investors and partners from across the media industries, technology and finance companies.
Organisers say that entries are invited from producer-led teams from around the world with a strong track record in the creative industries. Each project's story must span a combination of film, TV, online, mobile, interactive, publishing, live events and gaming. Projects must also include the use of new tools, platforms, services and devices and be at an advanced stage of development.
