European Short Pitch is back for its ninth edition. Writers, directors and producers can apply for the initiative that helps with the development of international short film projects.

European Short Pitch is an initiative aimed at promoting the European co-production of short films. It combines a scriptwriting workshop in residency and a co-production forum bringing together scriptwriters and industry professionals from all over Europe.

Selected on the basis of their short film projects, 20 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 55 producers, financers, buyers, and distributors.

European Short Pitch is open to creative teams developing international short film projects, so it is therefore open to writers, directors, and producers. Writer-­directors developing a project on their own are very welcome to participate in the programme. Yet it is strongly advised to already have nationally a production company interested or attached to the
project, especially at the time of the co-production forum held from 5 – 9 March 2015. Deadline for entries is 30th of September 2014.

All the details and required information of the call can be found on the NISI MASA website.
