Because of their geographical location, the Canary Islands may be considered a natural bridge connecting the continents of Europe, Africa and America, which makes the islands the perfect place to hold MiradasDoc Market, a media content market where documentary producers may sell their films to television companies and distributors.
Guía de Isora is on the island of Tenerife. Its attractive landscape, a spring-like average temperature of 24ºC, and the island’s modern communications infrastructures, combined with its top-quality hotels, make this enclave the perfect setting in which to hold an international conference for documentary professionals.
MiradasDoc Market is the ideal place for projects in search of funding and for finished productions looking for distributors or exhibitors.
