European Short Pitch is an initiative that combines mentoring on short film development with a pitching and networking event. Participants are selected with their short film project and attend both a scriptwriting workshop accompanied by renowned tutors and a Coproduction Forum bringing together industry professionals from all over Europe.
WHO CAN APPLY
- Creative teams of writers, directors, and producers developing international short film projects.
- Between 18 and 35 years of age on the closing date of the call for projects.
- Nationality or country of residence should be one of the member countries of the Creative Europe Programme (European Union + Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Iceland, Georgia, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway, Serbia, Tunisia and Ukraine).
650 Euros covering tutorship costs, accommodation and subsistence for both residential sessions. The fee does not cover the travel costs.
The fee covers the participation of one person per project. However, upon prior agreement with European Short Pitch, an extra person per project shall be admitted – he/she will have to cover his/her own travel, accommodation and subsistence costs.
Many countries support such training costs. We advise participants to apply for scholarships through their national film funds.
