Filmarket Hub is an international online market that connects film and TV projects currently in development with companies from the audiovisual sector, including production outfits, studios, TV channels, streaming platforms, sales agents and distributors. The platform’s aim is to increase the visibility of the crème de la crème of up-and-coming talents and foster agreements to produce new projects. As its institutional sponsor, Madrid Online Pitchbox has secured the support of the Madrid Film Office, a public service of Madrid City Council that promotes the city as a filming location, assists production companies and professionals that choose Madrid as a place to bring their projects to fruition and supports the Madrilenian audiovisual sector. Right from a project’s pre-production stage, it comes on board in order to facilitate location scouting and the development of audiovisual works in the Spanish capital.
