“Realscreen London will be attracting some of the most creative minds from the UK, Europe and indeed from around the globe,” said de Mol. “This is the perfect opportunity for Talpa and the greater production community to hear some of the freshest ideas out there.”

The competition takes place on Thursday, October 9, during the first edition of Realscreen London, which will be hitting the Congress Centre in London on October 8 and 9.
