The submissions to Comin’UP closed on September 4, 2023

In order to strengthen the theatrical distribution of feature films, and to create a strong marketplace and platform to discover new films in the autumn calendar, MIA 2023 provides a new initiative: Comin’UP, the ultimate session where to discover work-in-progress feature films to be pitched in front of an audience of theatrical buyers.

Comin’UP offers sales agents an opportunity to showcase unseen footage of their forthcoming films. The sessions will take place from Tuesday, October 10, to Thursday, October 12, from 9:30 to 11:30 am at the Barberini 1 hall (85 seats).

Under this new program, sales agents book a slot to present exclusive images (scenes, excerpts, teasers) from films scheduled  for release in 2024 or later. These visuals must not have been screened before MIA 2023, including national releases, festivals, markets, or showcases.

Attendance is upon invitation only. Invites are directly managed by sales agents. 

Buyers will enjoy a truly ahead-of-the-game presentation, while enjoying exquisite Italian cappuccinos and pastries.

Presentations run 20 minutes each and are scheduled back-to-back for two hours.

The booking fee is 300 euros, breakfast included. The available slots are limited and requests have been processed on a first come-first served basis.
