Pitching Forum
Pitching Forum — Call for Projects now open!

FEST — Pitching Forum returns with a new online edition, taking place October 8 — 9, 2021.

This new format will allow for a bigger panel of experts as well as a worldwide audience, granting access to industry gatekeepers that would otherwise not be available to travel to Espinho for the physical event. FEST — Pitching Forum  will also, once again, offer development and post-production awards as well as co-production opportunities.

Application fees and deadlines are as follows:

  • Early Bird (50€) — June 21st;
  • Regular Fee (60€) — July 23rd;
  • Late Fee (80€) — July 30th.

In total, 22 projects will be selected. Selected finalists will pitch their project to international film industry decision-makers: producers, investors, fund managers, sales, distributors, and festival programmers; in order to win awards, receive feedback and partake in one-to-one meetings. They will also have access to a three-day training headed by world-renowned project development experts, who will guide them on the way to preparing a perfect pitch.

Filmmakers who are looking for support for their projects can now submit to FEST — Pitching Forum.
