European Short Pitch, the successful short pitching forum organised by Nisi Masa is growing every year. For their next edition they are adding a new element to the coproduction forum, in the collaboration of C3PM-Paris Couts Devant and Espera Productions: they are expecting pitches that are already works-in-progress, to help the selected filmmakers to find a co-producer and help with the promotion of their short films.
At the final selection, 5 European talent will have the chance to pitch their short film project in front of the panel of 55 producers, financers, buyers and distributors. It’s a grand opportunity for the filmmakers to get out on the stage and present their short film projects, and possibly get a financial support or just make a name for themselves in front of the most important people of the industry.
The coproduction forum will take place from the 2nd till the 6th of March 2016 in Luxembourg as part of the Luxembourg City Film Festival. The participants will get one day to prepare their short film pitches with the help of a tutor. The pitching will take place on the 4th of March, each of the filmmakers will have 7 minutes for the complete pitch.
The awards will be handed out by the representative of Espera Productions (Luxembourg-based production company) – one for 3500€ and one for 7500€.
