Screen Talent Europe and Galway Film Centre in collaboration with The Norwegian Short Film Festival invite emerging producers, directors and screenwriters from Northern Europe to pitch new short film and documentary projects at the festival in Grimstad, Norway, June 8th – 12th 2016.
It is free to participate and the costs of transportation and accommodation will be covered by Screen Talent Europe. The prize for best film pitch is film equipment for production, post-production facilities and a cash production grant of 50.000 NOK (5300 €). Applicants must apply with a project in development (fiction or documentary) with a maximum length of 40 minutes.
10-14 short films and documentary projects will be pitched during the Pitching Forum for Co-Production projects at the Norwegian Short Film Festival. In a five-minute pitch, each participant will present their project to a pitching jury and an audience of potential co-producers, co-financiers and filmmakers attending the festival. Producers, directors and screenwriters must be between 18-30 years old and must have produced at least two films (fiction or documentary).
The project must be produced through international co-production. This means that the project owner will produce the entire or parts of the project in another country. It’s not a requirement to have a co-producer in another country when you apply, but to get the production grant disbursed, the project must be established as a co-production between two countries.
The application deadline is April 15th, 2016.
Applications must be made to one of the Screen Talent Europe partners and more details can be found on the Screen Talent Europe website:
