MIPFormats International Pitch Finalists Revealed


RX France, formerly Reed MIDEM, has revealed the five finalists selected to present at the 2022 MIPFormats International Pitch.

The five finalists are Cheat On The Glitch (Christian G. Gamboa, Philippines), Million Fall (Fuji Television Network, Japan), Roulette (formatworkshop, Turkey), Stars On Pole (NU Production, Spain) and Wingmen–The Dating Game (Michael Dolinsek Film Production, Austria).

The finalists, picked from a total of 67 projects, will be pitched on stage on the second day of the market to a jury chaired by Allison Wallach, executive VP, head of FOX Alternative Entertainment, alongside Natalie Wogue, consultant and international format strategist at FOX Alternative Entertainment, and Yasmin Rawji, senior VP of alternative entertainment at FOX Entertainment.

The winning format will win $5,000 for development and will be pitched to global buyers by FOX Alternative Entertainment.

“The many concepts and ideas submitted to this year’s MIPFormats International Pitch were beyond impressive,” said Wallach. “It’s great to see so much creativity and passion in these pitches, and selecting our five finalists proved to be an incredible exercise. I’m excited to join them on stage in Cannes to learn more about each project and the opportunity they may have on a much larger scale.”

Lucy Smith, RX France’s entertainment division director and director of MIPTV, said, “It’s wonderful to see such creative concepts from a broad diversity of countries in the shortlist. The spectacle of seeing these pitched publicly will again be unmissable, and I wish them all the very best of luck.”
