Straight from Ukraine, Maria Stepanska is aiming to get her short “Snails” produced. We hope that her great-looking Pitch Page gets her a deal in Cannes.
We’re talking about a low-budget production here (but hey, where are we not?), so from the total budget of €18,000, 20% is already covered. Shouldn’t be a long shot. Here is the synopsis of the film for you to decide:
The 27-year-old man is working for a Corporation, which is engaged in illegal occupation of rural land. Leaving for another “object”, he discovers a huge unfinished cathedral at the infinite field. He needs to decide what to do with the cathedral, as well as to subdue a farmer who rightfully owns the land.

How does it feel to have people in Cannes looking at your upcoming project?
– It’s like you are doing your marathon, out of breath, alone and you hope to see a taxi on the next corner. But on the next corner you find yourself at the Olympic Games with thousands of runners. I mean it’s a great possibility and big challenge as well.
What did you focus on when you were making your Pitch Page?
