Cross Video Days: digital strategies at the centre of the audiovisual industry

The Cross Video Days, the first professional cross-media market in Europe, has unveiled the programme for its fifth edition, which will be held in Paris on 19 and 20 June. The event is intended for innovative digital producers and creators who wish to bridge the funding gap of their multi-platform projects at an advanced stage of development, and increase their audience. This year, Cineuropa is a partner of the event, where we will be reporting live from the conferences and panels, and meeting the organisers, speakers and project leaders involved in the market and the pitching sessions.
