A BOOK IS A FILM

A BOOK IS A FILM IS A GAME: NETWORKING DAY

With the slogan “A Book is a Film is a Game”, the Frankfurter Buchmesse will once again bring together professionals from the world of books, film, games and new media on Thursday, 11 October 2018, at THE ARTS+. An exclusive programme will provide insight into the respective markets, and promote the adaptation and cross-media co-production business.

This year’s programme is dedicated to new trends and developments in audio-visual storytelling, including a special focus on series based on books.

The networking day is tailored to meet the needs of film and TV producers, new media experts such as VR, AR and mixed-reality professionals and games representatives, as well as agents and rights and licensing managers from the publishing industry.

In addition to inspiring keynotes and case studies, the programme also includes exclusive matchmaking sessions and a pitching event dedicated to books considered suitable for  potential adaption into a series.
