INTERNATIONAL PITCHING FORUM RETURNS TO CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL FOR 2019
Celtic Media Festival is delighted to announce the launch of the international pitching forum for 2019, introducing a development prize of £10,000 for the winning pitch. The CMF International Pitching Forum, in association with XPO North and the Canada Media Fund takes place at Celtic Media Festival in Aviemore, Scotland, from the 4th-6th of June.
Celtic Media Festival is delighted to announce that following on from its success since its launch in 2016, they are bringing back their International Pitching Forum, in association with XPO North and the Canada Media Fund for the Festival in 2019 which will take place in the historic setting of Aviemore, Scotland.
In 2019, the festival will strengthen its International links, this year working with the Canada Media Fund and hosting delegates from Canada. Canadian producers and broadcasters will attend Celtic Media Festival to take part in the International Pitching Forum, providing Celtic delegates with opportunities to do business on an international stage.
The International Pitching Forum in 2019 will host delegates from Canada for the opportunity of international co-productions and for the first time this year the panellists will pick a ‘winning’ pitch. This pitch will receive development money of £10,000 and does not preclude any other productions from gaining commissions and funding from broadcasters.
This year focussing on Factual Programming, Producers are invited to submit their proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org from 15th of September 2018.
A Proposal Pitching Round will be announced which will close in mid January and a short list of submissions will be selected for the presentation of live pitches. The live pitches will be held at the CMF in Aviemore in closed session with only the Forum moderators, the Forum decision makers and the selected producer/team present at each pitch.
