This is your chance to be part of an intensive pitch training and funding opportunity at this year's imagineNATIVE
Do you have a great idea for a short dramatic or documentary short? New this year, imagineNATIVE’s pitch competition brings short stories to the big screen with prizes to produce them to perfection. Enter our competitions to pitch your idea to an esteemed jury of shorts producers, programmers and development leaders who will provide valuable feedback, advice, and make the final winning decision! You will also have a chance to win imagineNATIVE’s Short Documentary or Short Drama Pitch prizes (presented by APTN and CBC) to help your idea become a reality, including new prizes of a TIFF 2014 Conference Pass and a free "Documentary Essentials" workshop package by The Doc Story Studio.
FOUR short documentary & FOUR short drama pitch contestants (or teams) will be selected by imagineNATIVE’s Programming Committee to receive a free, six-hour intensive “How to Pitch” workshop with Producer, Digital and Social Media Strategist, Deborah Day. Accompanied by Industry guest speakers, this workshop will provide invaluable insight and instruction on the pitching process and advice on improving individual pitch ideas before pitch day. The intensive workshop will take place on Wednesday, October 16 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, Reitman Square, 350 King St. W. in downtown Toronto.
Each five-minute pitch will then be presented to the panel of short film programmers, aficionados and filmmakers during the festival’s “Pitch Competition for Dramatic Works” and “Documentary Pitch Competition” on Friday, October 18 in a live, staged event at the Festival’s venue, the TIFF Bell Lightbox.
