All pitches are free and open to the public. Spanning all genres of narrative-based projects, the South Pitch Narrative Film program is open to narrative shorts, narrative features, and web-based pitches. The winner, based on a three-minute pitch, receives an in-kind post-production package valued at $40,000 from the New Orleans-based KyotoColor, in addition to Final Draft 10 and a Vimeo Pro account.
For the third year, Tribeca Film Institute is presenting a documentary short pitch competition under the banner of the IF/Then Documentary Short Film Program. This year’s theme of “Inclusive Economies” is open to diverse filmmakers from the American South, and the pitch calls for original stand-alone short documentaries (10-20 minutes) that explore themes of economic inclusion and resilience through a regional and place-based lens.
