About

This "idea-to-market" series project development program is the only existing residential, project-based training targeting and tailoring its content for emerging professionals – both creative teams and development executives – coming from the Central and Eastern European region and the only program of this kind accepting both limited and ongoing, and both long or short form series.

The program focuses on participants primarily coming from Central-Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the Baltic countries and the wider Mediterranean area, with a possible background in filmmaking or with previous experience in TV writing, wanting to shift to quality production of series.

MIDPOINT TV Launch is realized with the support of Creative Europe - MEDIA Programme of the European Union.
