Selected Projects


The 5th edition of Dot.on.the.Map Industry Days will be held in Limassol, Cyprus between 18 – 20 April 2024, in the framework of the 22nd Cyprus Film Days International Festival.

Eight feature length fiction film projects have been selected to participate in the pitching sessions of the co-production forum, Dot.on.the.Map Meeting Point [Friday, 20 April, 2024, Rialto Theatre, Limassol].

Eight teams of producers – directors with projects originating from countries of the Mediterranean region will pitch their new feature length film projects to representatives of the international film industry. Following group works and individual meetings, the filmmakers will take steps towards forming future artistic and financial collaborations with other filmmakers, international producers, financiers, sales agents, broadcasters, distributors, festival and film fund representatives. Dot.on.the.Map Industry Days provides an excellent opportunity to network with industry professionals from across Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa and to explore co-production and distribution opportunities, discuss new projects in development, and pursue cross-border collaborations.
