Engine Room Pitch
A bit of advance notice... one of our partners at this year's event is Sheffield Doc/Fest, who will be hosting an intensive two-day pitch workshop at the Bond in Digbeth right at the beginning of Flatpack (23-24 March). If you have a documentary project which you're touting about, this could be an excellent chance to develop it and explore different funding avenues alongside other filmmakers and with feedback from two UK commissioners. The course is led by marketplace specialist Christina Burnett (Wide Eye Pictures), costs £30, and is open to filmmakers based in the West Midlands.
To express an interest, email Doc/Fest Marketplace Producer Charlie Phillips via firstname.lastname@example.org with a one-page proposal for a factual/documentary project (single, series or cross-platform doc) and brief information about yourself. Projects can be at any stage of development, for any platform, as long as it is a factual project. The deadline for applications is Friday 5th March.
