Pitching is a unique platform held alongside international exposure events at Suzanne Dellal Centre, which offers Israeli artists professional opportunities abroad. As part of pitching, an international panel consisting of festival directors, artistic directors, curators, and academy directors will convene, which will provide support for proposals for new and future projects.
The pitching event will be held as an independent event on one of the international exposure days held between November 29 and December 3, 2023.
