European Short Pitch is an initiative aimed at promoting the European coproduction of short films. It combines a scriptwriting workshop in residency
and a coproduction forum
bringing together scriptwriters, directors and industry professionals from all over Europe.
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.
From the previous editions (2007-2018), around 267 projects were presented that have resulted so far in the making of 96 short films- many of them having a very successful international career.
