All over the world new talents are pushing the boundaries of filmmaking or gaming, and imagine new forms of content hybridization. They embrace digital technologies and platforms to create new exciting narrative universes enriched by interactive and immersive experiences. Because we want innovative universes to be rooted in reality, we host every year hundreds of pre-arranged one-to-one business meetings between pre-qualified content producers and a wide range of financiers. Among them, some of the most emblematic international broadcasters, distribution platforms, online publishers, MCNs, public funds or VCs.

Supported by Creative Europe program since 2013, Cross Video Days (2-4 October 2017) is a unique marketplace where innovative digital content and studios can be pitched, scouted and financed. This year, Cross Video Days will offer two tracks: the first one to finance digital projects in development phase, a second one to finance the activity of game and cinematic AR/VR Studios.
