FEST - PITCHING FORUM ANNOUNCES ITS 2022 SELECTION
08.06.2022

FEST — Pitching Forum returns in full form with a total of 22 selected projects for its 2022 edition.

These films were selected among a strong batch of applications, submitted by filmmakers from all over the world: producers, writers, and directors looking for the financing and co-production opportunities FEST has to offer. After hard deliberation, 22 were chosen, split between three categories:

  • FEATURE GEMS — Fiction, documentary and animation feature films (min. runtime of 55 minutes) in early stages of development;
  • WORK IN PROGRESS — Fiction, documentary and animation feature films (min. runtime of 55 minutes) in advanced production stages;
  • MAKE IT SHORT — Fiction, documentary and animation short films (max. runtime of 55 minutes) in both early and advanced production stages.

 

The finalists will now be part of an intense training period, mentored by industry professionals, so they have the best performance possible during their final pitching presentations. Afterwards, the winners will be awarded several different prizes, and the tools to make their projects come true.

Check out the selected projects below!
