Shortlist Judges in Place for ATF Formats Pitch


The Asia TV Forum & Market (ATF) Formats Pitch Competition has revealed the lineup of industry veterans serving as shortlist judges for the competition’s first round of elimination.

The shortlist judge’s lineup features Laetitia Lamic, the deputy director general of Coyote (France); Kit Yow, the sales manager for AsiaPac at all3media International; and Nick Smith, the senior VP of format production at all3media International.

The ATF Formats Pitch, backed by global partner all3media International, will take place on November 30.

Yeow Hui Leng, the senior project director of ATF, said, “We are excited to have the formats pitch as a highlight again this year at ATF’s 18th year. With all3media International, the pitch truly reflects an effort to grow Asia’s entertainment content industry. This second edition of the ATF Formats Pitch is a continuation of what we hope will be a cornerstone of discovering some of the best talents, ideas and formats. You will hear it first at the Asia TV Forum & Market.”

Smith added, “I’m delighted to be joined by my colleague Kit Yow—her extensive knowledge of the individual territories within Asia make her an invaluable Short List judge and it is an honor to welcome Laetitia Lamic—her wealth of experience and knowledge of acquiring and producing entertainment and factual entertainment formats for major French broadcasters is second to none—her hits in France are too numerous to mention and she is relishing the prospect of assessing the entries in this year’s ATF Formats Pitch with all3media International.”
