European Short Pitch is an initiative aimed at promoting European coproduction of short films which combines a scriptwriting workshop in residency, an on-line session and a Coproduction Forum bringing together scriptwriters and industry professionals from all over Europe. The initiative aims to bring young European talents into the spotlight, give them a high-end promotion opportunity, and develop short film coproduction in Europe.
European Short Pitch is open to creative teams developing international short film projects, therefore open to writers, directors, and producers.
The 7th European Short Pitch is Calling For Projects!
NISI MASA is calling for projects from writers, directors and producers (aged between 18-35 years old) with international short film projects in development. Your nationality or country of residence should be one of the member countries of the MEDIA Programme (European Union + Croatia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland). European Short Pitch will also select up to 3 projects from non-member countries of the MEDIA Programme where NISI MASA has a member organisation: Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Russia and Ukraine.
European Short Pitch is composed of a scriptwriting workshop in residency, a coproduction forum, and an on-line session in between.
Selected on the basis of their short film projects, 25 European talents gather to discuss, rewrite, and learn to promote their stories on a European level with the support of 5 tutors. They eventually pitch their projects in front of a panel of 40 producers, financers, buyers, and distributors.
Please visit the official website to download the complete call for projects with more specific requirements.
The participation fee for each project is 500 Euros. 4 scholarships will be assigned by merit and will consist of a discount of 50% (250 Euros) on the participation fee.
