European Short Pitch

European Short Pitch is an initiative which aims at supporting European coproductions in regard to short film. Each year, 12 short film projects in development and 2 to 4 projects which are almost finished are selected. Participants with early-stadium projects are given the possiblity to take part in a 5-day scriptwriting workshop. The presentation of all projects takes place during the 3-day coproduction forum.

Detailed information on contents and schedule of the programme:

Selected on the basis of their short film projects, European talents gather to discuss, rewrite, and learn to promote their stories on a European level with the support of tutors. They eventually pitch their projects in front of a panel of professionals: producers, financers, buyers, and distributors.

European Short Pitch aims to bring young European talents into the spotlight, give them a high-end promotion opportunity, and develop short film coproduction in Europe. This initiative is about enhancing economic viability and European visibility for short film projects.

Deadline for Applications: July 27, 2023

The co-production forum in February 2024 (dates to be announced) will be held both on-site in Brittany and online.
