Main Pitch is a platform aimed at independent filmmakers and production companies developing and raising finances for their documentaries. This pitch will focus on networking and support for filmmakers. Finalists will be mentored/guided by professional tutors to enhance their presentations prior to the pitch day.
Ten projects will be carefully selected by the selection committee and will take part in the Main Pitch. Producers and filmmakers will use this platform as an opportunity to secure funding for their productions, as well as support for possible overseas broadcasting, distributions, festival screenings and sales.
Project proposals should refer to documentaries covering topics on various issues facing SEE, MENA, the Caucasus and the world: People's diverse ways of life, social and human, investigative, current affair, history, arts, culture and sport. Proposed projects should be in their early development stages.
