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. They eventually pitch their projects in front of a panel of professionals: over 65 producers, financers, buyers, and distributors.
The scriptwriting workshop in residency will take place in September
2020 in a European country. During
five days, participants will work intensively on their projects with a
scriptwriting tutor heading the process. The Coproduction Forum will take place on 12th –
15th November 2020 in Brest, France as part of the Brest European Short
Film Festival. Participants will prepare and rehearse their pitching
with their tutors. The pitching session will be followed by one-to-one
meetings with invited professionals.
European Short Pitch is open to creative teams developing international short film projects. It is therefore open to writers, directors, and producers.
