SUBMISSIONS TO THE EDINBURGH PITCH ARE NOW CLOSED!
Don’t miss out on the only international documentary pitching forum in Scotland and a great networking opportunity!
The Edinburgh Pitch is aimed at independent filmmakers and companies developing and raising finance for creative feature documentaries and considering international co-productions.
Running alongside the Edinburgh International Film Festival, The Edinburgh Pitch focuses on connecting, not competing; on passion, not pressure. In a lab-like environment, 12 carefully selected participants take part in a one-day preparatory workshop (15th June) before the formal public pitch (16th June), followed by one-to-one meetings with decision makers the next day (17th June).
Our international panel consists of commissioning editors, funding bodies, sales agents, distributors, festival programmers, producers – all curious to see how you are going to surprise them.
We are looking for developed feature projects which are ready to be presented to financiers. Projects can be at an advanced development stage, in production or in early post-production. The Edinburgh Pitch is open to all filmmakers and companies based in the UK and abroad.
Deadline for applications: Sunday 10th April 2016
Applications to The Edinburgh Pitch are free.
