The 21th edition of the IDFA Forum has come to an end. A total of 51 projects from 21 countries were presented in different pitch set-ups. More than 700 meetings were scheduled by the Forum team between the pitch teams and the decision makers present. We hope that the Forum 2013 proved to be fertile ground and that the proposed collaborations will be finalized soon.

IDFA Forum 2014 will take place November 24-26.
The entry form will be online July 1 and the deadline for project submission is September 1. The deadline for accreditation is October 10.
