The Filmarket Hub platform has launched the 2021 edition of its UK Online Pitchbox – a two-day virtual pitch event dedicated to British feature films and scripted series in development.
For the fourth consecutive year, this online initiative aims to discover high quality unproduced projects; either at the script stage or with some finance secured and matches them with leading companies in the industry. Executives from Bankside Films, BBC Films, Bron Studios, Curzon, Film4, FilmNation, Lionsgate, NBCUniversal International Studios, Neal Street Productions, Red Arrow Studios, StudioCanal and World Productions are confirmed to attend.
7 feature films and 7 scripted series will be selected by Filmarket Hub to participate at the event, which will take place online in July. Representatives from the selected projects will have the opportunity to pitch and meet each of the participating executives in 1to1 meetings. In addition, all the selected projects will get an invitation to join the Filmarket Hub online marketplace and be featured in the Filmarket Best Project Selections. They will also be recommended in a mail out to Filmarket Hub’s international database of Film/TV companies. Call Deadline is May 20th.
