The Public Pitch is an online event where 10 projects will be presented in front of a large panel of commissioning editors, film funds and sales agents from all over the world. Each selected project will have the oportunity to do a live presentation and receive feedback from the financiers and decision-makers.
The selected projects wil lhave 15 minute one-to one-private online meetings with financers and decision-makers. The meetings will be arranged previously by matching financers and projects’ needs. They will take place over 2 days and the schedule will be adjusted to the different world time zones.
All projects participating in thePublic Pitch will receive training with international tutors in order to improve their project presentation.
What projects can be submitted?
Documentary projects in a development, pre- production, production or close to start postproduction, from any nationality and about any subject.
Aware of the great struggle the industry is going through in these difficult times, this year DocsBarcelona wants to acknowledge the effort made by all the projects going ahead despite the adverse circumstances, and will therefore grant the Public Pitch Award, with a cash prize of €2,500.
