About Dot.on.the.Map

27 – 29 April 2023

The 4th edition of Dot.on.the.map Industry Days, organised by the Cyprus Film Days International Festival, the Cyprus Deputy Ministry of Culture and the Rialto Theatre, will be held between 27 – 29 April 2023 in Cyprus, in the framework of the 21st Cyprus Film Days International Festival (21 – 29 April 2023).

Dot.on.the.map Industry Days is a co-production, training and networking platform that brings producers, directors and scriptwriters from countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, from across the three neighbouring continents of Cyprus, together with international film professionals. It provides an opportunity to filmmakers from these countries to present their new feature film projects and network with international industry professionals.

Producers and directors will “pitch” their new feature film projects to representatives of the international film industry. Following group works and individual meetings, the filmmakers will take steps towards forming future collaborations between other filmmakers, international producers, financiers, sales agents, broadcasters, distributors, festival and film fund representatives.

The organisers’ vision is the development of this initiative into a dynamic platform for artistic and financial collaborations, which will contribute to the development of the art of filmmaking in Cyprus and the wider region, serving as a hub for films originating from countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea.

The forum is implemented in partnership with Thessaloniki International Film Festival Agora.

Dot.on.the.map Industry Days includes two (2) sections:

  • The Meeting Point co-production forum
  • Cinema Talks –  a series of educational masterclasses, round tables and presentations by established industry professionals
