Each producer/director team will receive a summary of each accepted project for the JETS Initiative. Each team will preselect three other participating teams as potential Co-Production partners for an exchange talk (15-20 minutes) monitored by one or two jury members on the day.

Each producer/director team will receive feedback on their project by the jury members.

The 12-16 Jury members will decide at the end of the day which 6-10 film projects are best to be pursued and considered for possible financing/ funding.
