Pitch Fest 2015

Pitch Fest 2015

Win cash for your next production!

pitch800During this year’s festival, organisers are giving filmmakers the unique opportunity to pitch their short film idea to a panel of experts – which includes representatives from Pinewood Group and Isle of Man Film – with the chance to obtain additional funding for their project. Up to three successful candidates’ films will be offered financial support on a match-fund basis, with up to £7,500 available per project from Isle of Man Film*

To apply for a slot on the pitching session, you must submit a brief synopsis of your project to zoe@isleofmanfilmfestival.com by 7th August. Please also provide your full name, date of birth, and a phone number. A screenplay may be included in your application but is not essential.

Please note that space is very limited so not all applicants will be successful in gaining a slot. The chosen project must be shot entirely on the Isle of Man and, although the applicant filmmaker need not be island-based, a portion of the crew must be Manx.

*Full details and terms will be made available to shortlisted applicants. Candidates will be informed if their application has been successful by Monday 10th August.

Pitching will take place on the afternoon of Friday 11th September. You must be available in person on the Isle of Man on this day.
