FEST-Pitching Forum is FEST - New Directors New Films Festival’s international financing and co-production event, dedicated to the facilitation, development and financing of film projects.
Applicants have 5 minutes to present their pitch to world renowned experts, which include producers, distributors
and financiers, all looking for new projects to support. At the end of each pitch there are 10 minutes for collective feedback and discussion with the experts. In addition to that, each applicant will have the opportunity to partake in an exclusive individual meeting with all the experts, for private feedback and counselling about their project.
The projects are divided into three categories: short film, feature film and documentaries, so we can build a panel of experts working in these fields within the international film industry. One session will be held for each category.
Before the Pitching Forum itself, there is a three days training focused on project presentations, head by two renowned experts who will help the applicants to prepare their pitch, so they can take the most of it.
FEST - Pitching Forum will be held in Espinho, Portugal, at Biblioteca Municipal José Marmelo e Silva, on June 22nd and 23rh 2018. The training activities will take place on the previous days: June 19th, 20th and 21st.
