EUROPEAN SHORT PITCH
Start date: May 27, 2016,
End date: May 26, 2017
European Short Pitch is an initiative aimed at promoting the European coproduction of short films. It combines a scriptwriting workshop in residency and a coproduction forum bringing together scriptwriters/directors and industry professionals from all over Europe. Selected on the basis of their short film projects, 16 European talents gather to discuss, rewrite, and learn to promote their stories on a European level with the support of 4 tutors. The first session will mainly be focused on rewriting the project and pitching training. This intense, hands on one week session will be followed by several online sessions to keep on enhancing the quality of the project. Two months after the first session, the participants will pitch their film project in front of a panel of 50 invited producers, financers, buyers, and distributors. They will be invited for four days in Poznan, Poland to take part in the pitching session and to meet the scriptwriters/directors individually. For the second year in a row, there will be an additional focus on post-production as well where four works-in-progress will be shown and pitched during the second session. European Short Pitch aims to bring young European talents into the spotlight, give them a high-end promotion opportunity, and develop short film coproduction in Europe. This initiative is about enhanced economic viability and European visibility for short film projects. It is expect that a minimum of 75% of the projects will find their (co-)producers during the event.
