Broadcasters: Stay Tuned

How to get a broadcaster on board in modern times

27 May 2021 18:30 — 20:00

How can we contact with a broadcaster? What function they have?

The broadcasters remain an important contributor to our world of documentaries by participating in the doc pitch events. They are the only non-speculative deal at the table. When they say yes, they give you money.

All other media or forms of financing are speculative: one has to sit and wait if they ‘click’. But everywhere the broadcasters are under pressure: less money, less doc slots, the fight for viewers, but the pitched projects remain stable, likely even more every year.

Jan Rofekamp is a doc sales agent, now consultant, with almost 40 years experience. He will walk you thru the broadcast landscape and will give you some reality and practical tips.
