The Filmarket Hub platform and the Sitges Film Festival have announced the 5 selected series in development at the new edition of Sitges Pitchbox — an international pitch event dedicated to horror, sci-fi and fantasy projects.

The event will take place in October as part of the industry activity of the Sitges Film Festival. Representatives from the selected projects will have the opportunity to pitch and meet TV executives from leading companies.

The best project will be awarded with 2.500€ to support development expenses. The jury for series consists of Ana Diez (Movistar+), Nína Dögg Filippusdóttir (Vesturport) and Candela Izquierdo (Federation Spain).

Additionally, the 5 projects will be invited to participate at the brand new Showrunners LAB and offered 1to1 advisory sessions with the three confirmed mentors — Nick Antosca, Teresa Fernández-Valdés and Jannik Tai Mosholt. The lab will also host masterclasses exploring the main characteristics of the American, the Spanish and the Scandinavian model of showrunning, as well a presentation of case studies. The Showrunners LAB is supported and co-organised by Europa Creativa Desk — MEDIA Catalunya.
