The art of pitching is the professional oral presentation of a project idea or story. A task that even brilliant filmmakers and producers often fail at. A successful pitch of a film project can decide whether a project is realized or not.
PITCH_IT@Berlinale offers intensive workshops in the fields of production, directing, distribution and film-marketing. All Mentors are highly experienced and decorated members of the current film industry and will guide your project throughout this programme. Furthermore, the pitching training by communication trainer Sibylle Kurz is intended to help the participants to prepare their projects in line with the actual film market requirements and offer skills for networking in the international film industry.
At the end of the trainings, the participants can present their film projects to employees of international film festivals (e.g. Sundance, IDFA, Dok.Fest München etc.) and film funding agencies alongside Berlinale 2023.
We look forward to applications from filmmakers in the fields of animation, documentary, feature film and experimental film.
The language of the training and the workshop is English.
The conditions of participation and details can be found in the call for entries. The application deadline is April 19th, 2022.
A jury made up of internationally renowned film experts from Hungary, the Czech Republic and Germany decides on the participation of the applicants.
