Content Showcase as the central part of the program

In addition to exceptional speakers, NEM Zagreb will also present premium and original content during the central part of the Content Showcase program. Projects in various stages of development will be presented; from those that are currently just an idea or in the phase of collecting financial resources to those already on air. The program will consist of several presentations by the largest European and regional companies such as Firefly Productions, 24 sata, and others. Also, Cine Link Drama will present the content of BH Telecom and hold a showcase of selected projects.

Promoting the development of creativity and the TV industry in the region

NEM Zagreb will once again be the central gathering place for successful representatives of FTA television, pay-TV channels, streaming services, producers, directors, actors, screenwriters, production houses and agencies, and other content creators. Under the slogan All about content creation, the event is focused on the creative side of the TV industry and is relevant for Central and Eastern Europe.

Panel discussions, presentations, premieres of new television series, education, and a unique opportunity for networking with TV industry experts are an essential part of every New Europe Market (NEM) edition. NEM Zagreb is an event focused on the CEE region and countries with lower production capacity within the region to bring together audiovisual professionals and key decision-makers from Europe. Also, in the weeks before the event itself, a workshop will be organized under the leadership of Script Angel and lecturer Hayley McKenzie, which will allow creatives to improve their skills.
