Realscreen’s MIPTV Picks for 2012

With MIPDoc kicking off on Friday, we at realscreen are happy to present the projects heading to this year's MIPTV market that we feel are "must sees," from war horses and hero dogs, to super spiders and human towers.

Once again, we at realscreen are happy to present the projects heading to this year’s MIPTV market that we feel are “must sees.” Clips submitted to our intrepid viewing panel ranged from hard-hitting, socially conscious doc fare to historical programming that deftly mixes archive material with vivid re-enactments; and from scintillating science and natural history, to watercooler-friendly factual entertainment. And mountains – there seemed to be a glut of projects based around mountain expeditions this year, which we can only assume is symbolic for this being a “peak” year in non-fiction content, as opposed to a “valley.”

Congrats to our best in show, and be sure to check out all the clips.
