VdR–Pitching is an international co-production and financing forum that reveals a selection of feature length projects. Ready to be launched into production, they combine artistic ambition and international potential.

The Pitching offers the participants the opportunity to present and to thoroughly discuss the form and content of their projects and to find out which contexts and collaborations might be the most relevant for them. Through a live presentation and roundtables with decision makers as well as specific individual meetings, the Pitching encourages international co-productions and helps to finance outstanding film projects addressing an international audience. Every year, international juries are invited to give various awards.

Visions du Réel is thrilled to share its 2022 project selection.
16 projects are invited to participate to VdR–Pitching:
