First and foremost, VAF is meant to be a networking and match-making event. We wish for each project not only to receive constructive feedback from experts, but also for it to find its ideal financing, co-producing, distribution and sales partner on its way to festivals and the market. This year at VAF, after each pitching session, time will be specifically reserved for each project team to meet with experts, tutors, jury members and, most importantly, the guest professionals present at VAF.

Each of the three networking sessions, dedicated to Shorts, Features and Series / TV Specials respectively, will be divided into 15-minute slots of one-on-one meetings. These slots will be allocated on a “first come, first serve” basis via a meeting request sheet handed out and filled in at the end of each pitching session by any VAF-accredited professional desiring to meet the project teams. Our networking managers will collect the requests and perform some magic using high-tech algorithms to allocate your meetings with regard to your order of preference.
Please refer to the programme to find the location and time of each of the three Networking Sessions. You will find the printed final list of your meetings at the start of the sessions, which will tell you the order of your meetings and direct you to the table that corresponds to the projects of your choice. Please don‘t forget to request your meetings at the end of each of the three pitching sessions and be warned – due to high demand, it’s first come, first serve!
