Canary Wharf Film Festival - Pitching Session

Post by CWFF » Thu Jul 30, 2009 11:49 am

Next Generation Pitching Session

This is the chance to pitch your film idea to a panel of the most respected film professionals!
We know you have an award winning script in your drawer. Or is it a great film idea on the tip of your tongue? Well then, it’s time to pitch it and get a leg up in the creative filmmaking area of your choice!

If you are a young filmmaker aged 16 – 21 years old and you live in East London (meaning your post code starts with ‘E’) than you are eligible to participate in CWFF’s ‘Next Generation Pitching Session’, to be held on Fri 4 September 2009. Details online:

How it works
To participate, submit a 50-word description of a film project. Is it a documentary? What is it about? Is it an animation? How do you want it to look? Or is it fiction? Tell us more about these characters! It’s free entry, open to any film idea as long as you believe in it! CWFF’s Festival Director will then choose five participants to pitch at the event.

To apply, send your 50 words along with name, contact number, email address and postal address to no later than 24 August 2009.

What you get
The ‘Best Pitch’ will get from Central Film School a Weekend Masterclass
The five selected participants will receive ‘Movie Magic Screenwriter’ software.
Constructive feedback! Advice on how to pitch yourself and your film project and network too.

The Panel
Made up of Film Director and Isle of Dogs resident, Eran Creevy (Shifty), Liz Hobbs (movieScope Magazine), Bob Portal (Central Film School Tutor & Producer) and Olivia Bellas (CWFF Festival Director).

With the support of the Canary Wharf Group, CWFF has teamed up with movieScope Magazine and Central Film School to give you the opportunity to improve on all the skills you need to be a successful filmmaker! Don’t miss out. Submissions open from 28July – 24 August! Selected participants will be announced by the 28th.
