The Middle East Media Initiative (MEMI) in partnership with Cairo Industry Days will hold A One Day TV Focused Pitch Forum. TV producers and executives from US and Middle Eastern companies will hear ten-minute pitches from each writing/producing team.
MEMI is an innovative professional exchange produced at the USC School of Cinematic Arts in partnership with the U.S. Department of State and Middle East TV Industry Partners. Recognizing that television series as a major influence in entertaining and informing audiences, MEMI seeks to support and train the current generation of Arab TV screenwriters and content creators in telling local stories that are firstly entertaining and spark important conversations and actions around pluralism and mutual understanding. This year MEMI has selected eleven (11) TV projects from across the Arab world.
