In a new strand called Shorts2series the 20 selected short films – the cream of the 2019 Hollyshorts Festival - will be presented at Content London.

There will also be a networking opportunity for producers, channels and platforms to meet with the creators to discuss development to series.

C21’s editor-in-chief & managing director David Jenkinson said: “Shorts2series, and our new relationship with Hollyshorts, is designed to connect the best short films (with the most significant series potential) with the global drama business. The great thing about short films is potential partners can see the opportunity in a clear way, and they are often packaged and well developed.

“Together with the Hollyshorts team we have selected the best shorts from more than 6000 films and worked with the creators to prepare them for longform conversations. This is all part of our push to ensure Content London is the most exciting development marketplace, and a place where the most compelling new voices can be discovered.”

HollyShorts founders Daniel Sol and Theo Dumont said: “This is a tremendous opportunity for our filmmakers and we are delighted to be teaming up with C21Media on this incredible initiative. We can’t wait to see who will break through and turn their short films into series.”

The Shorts2series strand is part of the growing agenda at Content London, the most progressive content development marketplace and conference
