Films need backing and financing. Markets like the Sheffield Documentary Festival, MIPCOM in Cannes, HotDocs, Leipzig, and MIP TV have now become essential venues for pitching opportunities, making sales, schmoozing, meeting people, and exchanging ideas regarding single films, and series, financing and coproducing. The combatants were divided into fifteen commissioning editors, and ten filmmakers who had been selected to make a pitch. Since Australia, many documentary markets and festivals have adopted the pitching idea. Every year The International Association of Independent Producers of the Mediterranean (APIMED), a small film market in the seaside town of Sitges, near Barcelona, sends out an open call for film proposals for the MEDIMED documentary market. One of the best things about MEDIMED is that it provides a preparation workshop for all those who have come to present proposals.
