Hop To It Productions President and Producer of Sloppy Jones Season 1, Susan Nation, is excited to be attending MIPCOM in Cannes again to pitch her slate, followed by the Bilbao Festival to celebrate Sloppy nominations, thanks to Ontario Creates and the CMF.
MIPCOM, the 38th International Co-Production & Entertainment Content Market, is the world’s greatest gathering of television and media professionals and the most anticipated week in the industry’s global calendar. From October 15-19, thousands of decision makers, creators, stars, producers and distributors from over 100 countries converge on Cannes, France, the world capital of the red-carpet, to sell and compete for new series, to source international production partnerships and to set the development agenda for 2022 and beyond.
Susan Nation will be looking for distribution opportunities for completed Season 1 of our award-winning queer slasher comedy, financing for a bigger Season 2 and a Sloppy Halloween Feature and the possibilities for a format. The timing is right for LGBTQ+ representation behind and in front of the camera, especially in the camp slasher comedy genre, which has been rare to date.
Bilabo Seriesland is a webseries celebration in Bilbao, Spain October 19-22 with the best panels, international industry judges and over 40 awards, providing a lot of opportunities for filmmakers, including PR, distribution deals and in-kind prizes.
The festival also includes Bilbao Web Market, the first market in Spain which is specifically dedicated to web series professionals who want to make deals during the festival.
Activities Susan Nation will be attending and particpating in include the Red Carpet and Awards Ceremony, a Co-Production Forum, Case Studies, Project Pitching, One to One meetings, Screenings, and Producer Round Tables.
Sloppy Jones is nominated in the following AMETS categories:
- Best Series (Unstoppable)
