Oceania Pitch 2013 will take place during FIFO 2013, from February 4th to 7th.

In addition we will be welcoming commissioning editors from most of the pacific countries – such Paora Maxwell (TVNZ) and Carol Hirschfeld (Maori tv), Fiji TV, Cook islands tv, Tonga (Digitv), Samoa, Vanuatus, Solomons, PNG and, of course, representatives from France Ô, the major french overseas channel – Polynesie 1ere, Caledonei 1ere and Walles et Futuna 1ere.
