How does it work?

  • The annual call for applications is open to all.
  • Selection is based on the filmmaker’s proven ability and the strength of the story, characters, and footage provided.

The Format

Selected filmmakers join a supportive environment of international filmmakers coming together to discuss, develop, and rework their pitches, leading to one-to-one meetings with representatives from digital platforms. The online Forum will consist of 2 x 2h sessions for 4 weeks, along with individual mentoring meetings throughout the week. By the end of the Forum, filmmakers will be expected to produce a short pre-recorded pitch video, including a trailer of their project. These will be shared with platform representatives, in advance of the one-to-one pitching sessions.
