Focus: Film


Under the motto A BOOK IS A FILM IS A GAME – NETWORKING DAY, the Frankfurter Buchmesse will once again gather professionals from the world of books, film, games and new media on Thursday, 11 October 2018, at THE ARTS+. An exclusive program will provide insights into the particular markets, and champion the adaptation and the crossmedia 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 like VR, AR or mixed reality professionals and games representatives, as well as agents, rights and licensing managers from the publishing industry.

Besides inspiring keynotes and case studies, the programme provides exclusive matchmaking sessions, as well as a pitching event dedicated to books deemed appropriate for possible serial adaption.
