At this year’s EFM, we brought 30 movie projects analysed by AI in a pitching event on February 11th. With fifteen European and fifteen American producers, the filmmakers pitched their films during the two sessions. The event was part of the 2022 Berlinale and was associated with the European Film Market (EFM). The event hosted by Arianne Alcorta.

– The projects looking for financing or distribution deals were presented by the producers in an elevator pitch format.

– All projects were analysed by AI and the AI forecasts of the projects were provided during the presentations.

– A catalogue of the projects together with the AI results was provided to the participants after the event.

– The event was open for financiers, distributors, and other producers.

“We are thrilled to have this opportunity to present our technology to filmmakers around the world at this year’s European Film Market,” states Sami Arpa, co-founder and CEO of Largo. “That we could assemble 30 producers to pitch their projects and trust our technology to work for them is a testament to the trust and confidence filmmakers have in our abilities.”

The event initiated many acquisition and financing discussions for the presented projects.
