Pitch.Doc

Country Georgia Type of link Pitching Forum Deadline month November Event month December
Pitch.Doc, a documentary pitching session, takes place under the Tbilisi International Film festival (TIFF). The Pitching Session is open for documentary film projects in development. Georgia, as convenient geographical location, has an important role being meeting point for neighbors like Armenia and Azerbaijan, Ukraine and Moldova. We would like to use this opportunity in order to create an open space for meeting documentary filmmakers from different countries. Furthermore, to give them a chance to find additional funding sources fortheir projects. Why documentary? Project participant countries, all having the same communist past, are still in difficult transitional process from being a Soviet state to becoming European country. This effort is complicated, but very interesting to depict, especially for documentary filmmakers. We hope that meeting will support co-productions and collaborations between participant countries and create useful networking platform in future. www.sakdoc.ge
