How does it work?

Within three distinctive trajectories, projects and participants have the opportunity to creatively develop their works and skills in a safe and collaborative environment and get ready for other international film festivals.

When is the HFM?

Project participants are offered an elaborate HFM programme, starting in the summer of 2024, with a pitch training, and a marketing and distribution training aimed at the participant’s and projects' creative development in a collaborative way.

During the HFM Days (20 - 27 September 2024) the selected projects will be presented to the international AV industry for professional feedback and the opportunity to network with a curated list of industry professionals.

HFM trajectories

We work closely with the project’s participants following their needs and wishes to find the most suitable industry professionals to coach them and mentor them during their tailor-made trajectories.
