PARTICIPATE IN A PITCHING FORUM FOR CO-PRODUCTION PROJECTS AT THE NORWEGIAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL
Screen Talent Europe in collaboration with The Norwegian Short Film Festival invite emerging producers, directors and screenwriters from Northern Europe to pitch new short film and documentary projects at the festival in Grimstad, Norway, June 14th – 18th 2017.
To participate you must apply one of the Screen Talent Europe partners. It is free to participate and the costs of transportation and accommodation will be covered by Screen Talent Europe.
The best pitch will receive a production grant of 5000 €.
10-14 short films and documentary projects will be pitched during the Pitching Forum. In a 5-minute pitch, each participant will present their project to a pitching jury and an audience of potential co-producers, co-financiers and filmmakers attending the festival.
To participate you must be between 18-30 years old.
Producers, directors and screenwriters must have produced at least 2 films (fiction or documentary).
You must apply with a project in development (fiction or documentary) with a maximum length of 30 min.
The project must be produced through international co-production. This means that the project owner has to produce the entire or parts of the project in another country. It´s not a requirement to have a co-producer in another country when you apply, but to get the production grant disbursed, the project must be established as a co-production between two countries.
