Thessaloniki’s Agora industry section (2-9 November) will, for the 15th year running, host one of its best-known sections, the Crossroads Co-Production Forum, which this year will run from 6-9 November in Warehouse C. The programme includes 15 projects and their attached directors and producers, two of which have been selected as part of Crossroads’ collaborations with MIDPOINT and Sofia Meetings. The participants will have a chance to introduce their projects to a select group of film professionals through curated meetings and other parallel events while competing for one of the Crossroads awards.
