"MeetMarket surprised me: I had an extraordinarily creative response to my film from 23 intelligent men and women who care passionately about documentaries. They reflected my story back to me and I came out richer â€“ not just financially, although I have already been offered money to complete my film, but in terms of valuing my project." â€“ MeetMarket participant 2007
