The Edinburgh Pitch is back: 14-16 June 2011

Submissions are now open for The Edinburgh Pitch 2011!

The Edinburgh Pitch is the only international documentary pitching forum in Scotland, now entering its 5th year and running alongside the Edinburgh International Film Festival (15-26 June). It’s aimed at independent filmmakers and companies developing and raising finance for creative feature documentaries (52′-90′) and considering international co-productions. Applications are now open and the deadline is 15 April 2011 (midnight).

12 participants will be selected and given the opportunity to pitch their project in front of a carefully selected panel of international and UK commissioning editors, sales agents and producers, followed by individual meetings. The Pitch is also open to Observers.

In addition to The Pitch, up to 6 UK and international documentaries at a rough cut stage will be selected to be screened to financiers and observers, allowing filmmakers to receive constructive feedback with focus on creative decision making and editing. Docs in Progress will take place from 15-16 June 2011.
