Roundtable topic
Challenges and opportunities for international sales, distribution and financing in a pandemic world.
Ready, Steady, Pitch! topic
In Q1 2021, Odin’s Eye are seeking scripted projects with engaging characters and strong concepts that are both universally relatable yet are somehow also unique. Projects may be animated, live action or hybrid. Documentaries are considered but are preferably feature length and they must have a strong call to action. We are not currently seeking format or lifestyle shows. All in all, we are looking for things that are original, smart, fun, diverse and ideally the project may help make the world a better place.
