Live!Ammunition! at the Edinburgh International Film Festival

followed by an afterparty

hosted by Shooting People and Wallflower Press

HAVE YOU GOT A GREAT IDEA FOR A MOVIE? This is it! Your chance to pitch your movie idea directly to a panel of top British film executives. These are the people who matter. They are the people who buy and develop scripts – they are the people who decide what will be made and what won’t.

Live!Ammunition is Raindance’s now-legendary pitching event. Where else would you have the undivided attention of not just one, but FIVE people who could help get your film made?


Past panellists include Charles Steel, Menhaj Huda, Norma Heyman, Roger Corman, Nik Powell, Ewan McGregor, Sally Caplan, Tracey Scoffield, Steve Gaydos, Matthew Vaughn, Shane Meadows and Matthew Dench.

To pitch, just drop a fiver in the hat and the floor is yours. You have up to two minutes to convince the panellists to read your script or make your film. They can and will gong you off if you are boring. The best pitch will win all the money in the hat, and, who knows, could be picked up for development.

After the event, celebrate your victory or drown your sorrows with free drinks at our afterparty hosted by Shooting People and Wallflower Press, who will also be celebrating the launch of their new quarterly film magazine, Electric Sheep.

The event starts at 7.30pm and is free entry.

Open to all EIFF pass-holders. Arrive early to guarantee entry.
