CEETV and NATPE announce winner of third edition of PITCH & PLAY LIVE! #PitchPlay

Los Angeles/Budapest, 27 June – CEETV and NATPE have today announced  the winning format of the third edition of PITCH & PLAY LIVE!, which took place this evening during NATPE BUDAPEST INTERNATIONAL, as:  IN THE DARK (LNK, Lithuania) – in which seven sighted people are selected to tackle an extreme challenge – to survive ten weeks in complete darkness.

The winning format was chosen from three finalists, which also included THE COMMUNITY (Pink, Serbia) – a format in which contestants deal with real issues and everyday situations; and TWINS (Pyatnitsa, Russia) – where each episode tells the story of one pair of twins who decide to change their look and become different.

IN THE DARK was announced as the winner after the three finalist formats were presented live by their creators in Budapest during the PITCH & PLAY LIVE! session on Wednesday, 27 June. The jury, consisting of Manuela Caputi, Head of International Sales, Mediaset; Marietta Temesvari, Development and Content Strategist, Sony Pictures Television, CE and Kateryna Vyshnevska, Head of Development & Co-production, FILM.UA, then deliberated and selected the top format. 

This year, PITCH & PLAY LIVE’s three finalists were selected from among 14 formats from Lithuania, Serbia, Hungary, Russia and Turkey, following the vote of a selection committee which included Damien Porte, VP International Sales, Vivendi Entertainment; Nelly Feld, Head of Sales, Acquisitions and International Relations, Reshet TV; Andrew Sime, VP of Formats, Banijay Rights; Dann Novak, Content Executive, NATPE and Georgi R. Chakarov, President and CEO of TVBIZZ and CEETV.

Each format was evaluated based on three criteria: originality (how original is the idea for the format); universality (does the format idea show flexibility for changes and development) and internationality (does the format have the potential to be sold internationally). The selection committee members reviewed each of the 14 formats and voted in all three criteria with scores from 1 to 5. The final ranking was determined from the accumulated sum of all scores of the five selection committee members.

Jiangsu Broadcasting Corporation closes deal with Viasat World for docudrama Scars of Nanking

Budapest, Hungary: 26 June 2018: Jiangsu Broadcasting Corporation (JSBC) has today signed a deal with Viasat World at NATPE BUDAPEST. The international media company has secured the rights to broadcast the Emmy Award-winning docudrama Scars of Nanking on Viasat History in July 2018.

Seniha Tunaboylu, Head Of Content And Acquisitions, Viasat World, and Li Hanchun, Deputy Director of International Department, JSBC signed the deal today, with Li Sheng, Vice President of Jiangu Broadcasting Corporation and CEO of NATPE, JP Bommel also in attendance the event and witnessing the signing of the deal.

On securing the rights to air the docudrama on Viasat History across CEE, Tunaboylu comments: “Our Viasat History audience is very loyal and discerning, and we are committed to bringing them more of the world-class, acclaimed content that they crave. With this deal, our important partnership with JSBC continues to deepen. Scars of Nanking is a fantastic addition to our programme line up for July, and we can’t wait to see how it performs on the channel.”

Li Sheng comments: “The Nanking Massacre is a very important historical event during World War II. I believe the screening of Scars of Nanking on Viasat History will let more European audiences know about the forgotten holocaust. It is also a great pleasure for JSBC and Viasat World to partner, bringing world-class content to a bigger audience.”

Scars of Nanking won the nominations of Outstanding Cinematography and Outstanding Single Camera Editing in 45th Daytime Emmy, and finally received the award for Outstanding Cinematography.

In Scars of Nanking, American missionaries struggle to save Chinese civilians from slaughter and rape at the hands of Japanese invaders and to smuggle out evidence of the infamous Nanking Massacre of 1937. During the brutal invasion of China in 1937 by Imperial Japanese forces, tens of thousands of civilians and prisoners of war were murdered and women raped in the city that was then the Chinese capital. Today it is known simply as “The Rape of Nanking.” Many fled before the invasion. But 22 foreigners did not leave Nanking.

This is the story of some of those who chose to stay in the face of grave personal danger—American missionaries, some of them educators, others doctors or ministers, all determined to do what they could to help safeguard a quarter of a million Chinese civilians. Not only do they put themselves directly in harm’s way to protect women from rape and both men and women from random execution and murder—these Americans play a key role in bringing evidence of the Nanking Massacre to the rest of the world.

One missionary, Father John Magee, films the aftermath of atrocities, while another, George Fitch, risks everything to clandestinely spirit the films out of the city. Dr. Robert Wilson saves countless lives as the only remaining surgeon in Nanking, and a heroic teacher, Minnie Vautrin, prevents hundreds of rapes singlehandedly. Their stories come to life through the letters and diaries they actually wrote during that terrible time as they bear witness to one of the worst wartime atrocities in history.

NATPE’s JP Bommel looks on as Jiangsu Broadcasting Corporation closes deal with Viasat World for docudrama Scars of Nanking.

NATPE Budapest Renames as NATPE Budapest International

Launches Third Annual Pitch & Play Live! Extending the Competition to EMEA Producers

Los Angeles/Budapest, 8 March – NATPE Budapest is re-naming as NATPE BUDAPEST INTERNATIONAL in order to reflect the Global TV Market and Conference’s extended focus beyond CEE to the EMEA and worldwide content business.

NATPE BUDAPEST INTERNATIONAL will include a robust content marketplace, top-level studio screenings and business-focused conference sessions, and will take place at the InterContinental Hotel from 25 – 28 June 2018.

Reflective of the change, it’s annual PITCH & PLAY LIVE! event, co-hosted with CEETV the leading media platform for regional TV intelligence, will extend its entry criteria to include innovative independent producers* from the wider EMEA region.  

The goal of PITCH & PLAY LIVE!, now in its third year, is to showcase and recognize original format ideas with international potential. Any non-scripted format created after June 1, 2017 can be submitted for consideration in the competition. From all entries, up to ten titles will be selected and reviewed by an international committee of global content industry professionals, who will select three finalists. The top three formats will be presented at a dedicated session by their creators in front of a jury of highly respected TV professionals during NATPE BUDAPEST INTERNATIONAL.  After deliberation by the jury one format will be named the winner of PITCH & PLAY LIVE!

CEE and EMEA producers who wish to take part in the showcase will be offered a special discounted registration fee of €100 ($125) to the NATPE BUDAPEST INTERNATIONAL event in its entirety, providing complete access to the entire marketplace and conference. Participation/registration fees will be facilitated by NATPE (see links below for more information). 
In addition to media exposure, the winning format owner will receive complementary registration and accommodation for NATPE MIAMI 2019, as well as a series of development meetings with leading distributors in attendance.

NATPE President and CEO JP Bommel comments, “NATPE is about bringing people together to learn from one another – the more we engage and find common ground, the better we are able to navigate the evolving TV ecosystem. CEE is burgeoning with innovation and vibrancy, but as the world becomes a smaller place, we need to capitalise on the wider, growing talent pool present in the EMEA region. Last year’s Pitch & Play Live! event was a huge success, with the added bonus of a significantly reduced registration fee we look forward to seeing some even more creative, culturally and geographically diverse format ideas in 2018.”  

Submissions must include a one-page description of the format in English, a trailer of three minutes or less and at least one full episode, both with English subtitles. The deadline for submissions is 1 May 2018.
*To qualify for registration as a “producer” at NATPE BUDAPEST INTERNATIONAL, you must be a creator/producer with original content that has only been distributed/broadcast in a single regional market.

NATPE Budapest Introduces New Business Initiatives In 2017

NBCUniversal, MGM, Twentieth Century Fox, Lionsgate, CBS and Warner Bros. Offer Screenings

Los Angeles, 16 May –  JP Bommel, President & CEO of NATPE announced today the launch of several new initiatives for the forthcoming NATPE Budapest Global TV Market and Conference, taking place at the Intercontinental Hotel in Budapest from June 19-22.  

In addition to the robust conference program featuring “Success in Co-Productions: Maximizing Your Regional and International Business Partnerships” and “A World of Formats: Insights and Strategies for Global Distribution”, the premier global content and membership organization will introduce an expanded networking service, targeted buyers’ sessions and a regional producers’ summit all designed to foster new business and stimulate creative discussions and partnerships. NBCUniversal, MGM, Twentieth Century Fox TV Distribution, Lionsgate, CBS and Warner Bros. will offer CEE acquisition executives new content, fresh from the LA Screenings; and the popular Pitch and Play is back for a second edition.

150 companies from broadcasters, cable, satellite and pay-tv services, and digital networks across 70 countries are set to attend, and buyers’ participation is already outpacing last year, with more than 415 confirmed to-date. To facilitate buyer and seller introductions, NATPE is launching MyNATPE – the  organization’s proprietary, intuitive match-making networking platform.

Also set to debut at the conference are key “Business Intelligence”’ sessions – “Opening the Window on CEE” and “CEE Market Overview: Regional Breakout Hits, Trends and Data” – outlining CEE buyers’ programming needs and unveiling current trends from across the region.  These invaluable presentations will take place on Monday June 19, ahead of the opening of the market floor which takes place June 20.  

JP Bommel commented, “We are very excited to build on our successful return to Budapest and have the opportunity to not only showcase fresh content from around the world, but also highlight the incredibly powerful content from the CEE region. NATPE is proud to offer new initiatives designed to ensure delegates get the most from the event – from setting the scene with our opening Business Intelligence sessions to offering local producers the chance to discover more about the international market. NATPE Budapest is also a fantastic opportunity for networking with focused sessions and a number of parties, bringing the content and platform communities together at the epicenter of the CEE region.”

Featured Sessions include:

OPENING THE WINDOW ON CEE
This panel will consider the process of windowing content around the world which has become increasingly complex, with new platforms and opportunities springing up continuously. What do producers and distributors need to know about buyers’ expectations, and what do buyers need to know about the distributors’ approach to selling across the various existing and new windows?  A panel of experts will discuss how the business process is evolving in the CEE region; what’s new, the key battles over rights and where success has been found.   

CEE MARKET OVERVIEW
This multi-level, interactive session will provide a comprehensive look at CEE television and content, and support regional and global business acumen. Commencing with a comprehensive review exploring the latest trends in the region, including a look at the hits of the season, the presentation will be followed by a moderated discussion among regional experts and attendees.

REGIONAL PRODUCERS’ SUMMIT
This summit, curated to engage emerging producers within the CEE region, will also take place at Budapest’s Intercontinental Hotel on 20 June.  The event will open with a “state of the union” keynote delivered by a leading and respected senior executive.  This will be followed by a panel of experts leading a discussion and audience Q&A which will focus on the challenges and opportunities for production success in the region.  A pitch feedback session will then take place, where, selected via a submission process, four project reels from local production companies will be screened. Each project, one from four distinct formats, and its creator will then receive constructive comments and questions from our expert panel and their fellow participants.  The event will conclude with an informal discussion.

PITCH & PLAY LIVE
Following the success of the inaugural edition in 2016, CEETV and NATPE will host the second edition of their format initiative PITCH & PLAY LIVE, aimed at showcasing original format ideas with international potential from the CEE region. Any non-scripted format ideas created after June 1, 2016 can take part in the competition. The deadline for submissions has been extended until May 20. Up to ten titles will be selected and reviewed by an international committee of TV industry professionals who will pick three finalists. These top three formats will be presented live by their creators in a special session on June 21, as a key event of NATPE Budapest 2017, followed by a celebratory party.

“Now more than ever it is crucial to create content consumers want to engage with,” said Bough.  “NATPE does an incredible job servicing the intellectual and creative exchange between brands and broadcasters.”

“Today’s savvy consumers are seeking a deeper relationship with the brands they use and connect with,” stated JP Bommel, Managing Director and COO at NATPE.  “Through our work in the international content business, encouraging dialogue and partnerships across all disciplines, NATPE is in a unique position to unite leading brands and top creatives.  We are delighted to be at Lions Entertainment to further the debate and to be a catalyst in forging new industry business models and creative opportunities.”

This is followed by a unique masterclass, designed to provide detailed information about the steps required to reach global co-production success. In The Practicalities of Making a European Co-Production, a leading panel of experts will cover all aspects of scripted co-production from how to best design an effective pitch right through to choosing the proper distribution platform. Issues specific to the CEE will be discussed, including financing plans, and union relations and understanding global co-production treaties.
