Pitching du Réel is accepting submissions


Pitching du Réel, the pitching session happening in connection with Visions du Réel International Film Festival, is now accepting submissions. Deadline is 17th of December 2012.

The main target of Pitching du Réel is to encourage international co-productions and to help finance creative feature-length documentary projects for an international audience.

Pitching du Réel is intended for creative, fresh, high-quality documentary projects with theatrical potential, which combine artistic ambition with passion for the subject and commitment to the protagonists. This includes projects connected with visual arts and those intended for different platforms and contexts. Both projects by experienced as well as by new directors are welcomed. The project may be at any stage of development, but basic funding will be appreciated.

The 15 project-teams selected for participation will have a four-hour pitch training before presenting the documentaries with a 7 minutes pitch to international film professionals including co-producers, commissioning editors, film financiers, distributors, contemporary art curators etc. The pitch will not have a public Q&A, but will be follow by a series of round table discussions and in one-to-one meetings.

Pitching du Réel will take place on April 23-25 2013. Here you can read more about the pitching session.
