The Pitch 2011

Posted on 14 June 2011

Do you have what it takes to come up with a fresh and stunning short film concept, and then pitch your idea in two minutes to a panel of film industry judges?

The Pitch film competition is a unique opportunity for one winner to make a short film with professional production support worth in excess of £25,000.

Finalists will pitch live to top industry professionals such as actors David Oyelowo and David Suchet, animator Nick Park, editor of Empire magazine Nev Pierce and BBC producer Anna Cox .

Once you’ve made your winning film, you will fly to Hollywood to meet top professionals who’ll watch your film and give hints and tips on taking your skills to the next level.

2009 Pitch winner Simeon Lumgair has already met X-Men film producer Ralph Winter and has seen his winning film Derelict accepted by several international film festivals.

Project Director Luke Walton says: ‘We want people from all over the UK to enter The Pitch. It doesn’t matter if you’ve just turned 18 or 65 – all you need is imagination and drive.’

To enter The Pitch, simply upload a two minute video pitch, for a short film idea, to The Pitch website.

You have until midday on 14 October 2011 to pitch your film.
