27 Jun Pitch Your Film at Queer Screen Pitch Off!
Calling all aspiring LGBTIQ+ filmmakers! Do you have what it takes to publicly pitch your short-film project with passion and conviction?
Queer Screen Pitch Off offers Australian LGBTIQ+ filmmakers up to $10,000 of funding towards the production of a short film (narrative, documentary or a stand-alone web series pilot) dealing with the experiences of people of diverse genders and sexualities. To qualify, all film projects submitted must meet the eligibility requirements.
After an initial assessment of all eligible film projects, up to six filmmakers will be chosen to spruik their film proposal to a panel of expert assessors.
Finalists will have no longer than five minutes to pitch their proposal and impress the panel and public, so make your time count!
All finalists will also receive free script consultation from Matthew Dabner, Lecturer in Media Arts and Production at UTS, and renowned script editor, writer, and producer and two Flexi 5 passes to Queer Screen Film Fest 2023.
Queer Screen Members: Sunday 30th July, 2023
Non Members: Sunday 23rd July, 2023
Successful candidates will be notified by Wednesday 16th August, 2023 and are encouraged to pitch in person at the Pitch Off event on Sunday 27th August, 2023, at Event Cinemas George St, Sydney – alternatively they can pitch remotely via an online platform.
Queer Screen Pitch Off has been supporting emerging Australian LGBTIQ+ filmmakers since 2018, with five projects awarded much needed funding and 30 filmmakers receiving vital pitching experience.
