The Art of Pitching

Virtual Workshop


The Art of Pitching


If there’s one thing that is part of the filmmaking process from beginning to end is pitching. 
From the moment you start an idea, to gathering collaborators, financing, and then marketing – you will always be pitching.
In this 2-day hands-on workshop, learn how to pitch yourself and your project to many different stakeholders in various ways and situations, such as meetings, pitching competitions, and networking events.

Space is minimal, so if you’re interested in this workshop, register before the available spots fill up!
