And now, a look at several projects making their way to MIPCOM 2012 that realscreen‘s editorial staff has chosen as “must sees.” After viewing a veritable slew of clips submitted to us (somewhere over 100 – eventually we lost count), we’ve arrived at these projects, which run the gamut from hard-hitting social issue documentaries to lighter factual entertainment fare, and from awe-inspiring science specials to riveting natural history. Congratulations to the project named “Best in Show,” which wins a pass to the 2013 Realscreen Summit.
