Book To Film

‘Book To Film’ pitching event provides an opportunity to meet with publishers, directors, and producers looking to negotiate contracts for original property rights over content for film production. As a number of Book To Film projects introduced over the past 8 years are now in the process of making, or have already made, successful business deals, there has been increasing interest in the Book To Film pitching event from both the publishing and film industries. The 15 selections seek for viability of adapting books into films with its original and compelling plots and characters.
