Our Story International Pitching Conference has been initiated at the Haifa International Film Festival since 2004 to promote narrative feature films and maintain professional liaisons with International markets.
We host broadcasters, filmmakers, film fund directors and distributors from all corners of Eastern and Western Europe, USA and Canada, Brazil, Columbia and more, who gather to hear, comment and select Israeli narrative projects.
The Conference enjoys professional presentations and discussions of the visiting filmmakers who open their markets to new explorations. Since 2004 numerous Israeli filmmakers have presented their stories triggering collaborations in various stages of development.
Our Conference is a unique creative and practical marketing platform for filmmakers, the first of its kind in Israel, which encourages an intensive dialogue as well as new commitments on both sides. The International Marketing Forum enjoys the kind support of Israel Export and International Co-Operation Institute, Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Israel Film Fund, The Post Republic Post Production in Germany, G and H Media, Other Israel Film Fund, Opus Postproduction and JungleSound.
The Forum works in collaboration with the Scriptwriters Guild of Israel, Israel Film and TV Directors and Israel Film and TV Producers Association.
