Pitching Forum
Pitching Forum goes online with new dates

FEST - Pitching Forum 2020 will go online with new dates, taking on a new format, and tackling unprecedented times.

In a time where uncertainty is the dominant feeling all around, we at FEST have been working hard to try and bring you some of the best that our festival has to offer. We are glad to announce that we are bringing this edition of FEST – Pitching Forum to your computer screen, so you can pitch your latest project to our invited experts from the comfort of your own home.

The Pitching Forum will be separated into two main parts:

  1. The pitching workshop will take place online between the 20th and 24th of July;
  2. The pitching sessions will take place online between the 5th, 6th and 7th of August;

This new online format will actually allow a bigger panel of experts and a worldwide audience, accessing industry gatekeepers that would otherwise not be available to travel for the physical part of FEST’s Pitching Forum.

The online schedule will be available on our website, closer to the date and private feedback meetings between you and the experts will be made possible following the pitch.

The great news is, we have reopened and extended the submissions period and until the 22nd of June, you can still submit your project here for a chance to win development, co-production, and post-production awards.

We remind you that we are looking for Film Projects in the following categories:

  • Fiction Feature Films (of the minimum runtime of 55 minutes) in early stages of development;
  • Fiction Short Films (up to 55 minutes) in early stages of development;
  • Documentary Films (both feature and short length) in early stages of development;
  • Short, Feature and Documentary Films in advanced production stages;

Our invited experts tutoring the pitching workshop are Marian Sanchez Carniglia and Guillermo Garcia Ramos, making sure you practice your 5-minute pitch to perfection.

We hope to see you on the flat screen!
