Till the very last pitch: the finalists of the DIG Pitch 2019 take the stage

The selected team of finalists only have ten minutes to convince our jury and see their documentary funded: who’s gonna win?

Screenings & Awards

The finalists of the DIG Pitch category engage in a public pitching session that will be conducted in English.

In 10 minutes, authors will have to present their project to an international jury, in front of an audience consisting of buyers, broadcasters, commissioning editors and producers.

During their 10-minute presentation, authors can also play a teaser (up to 3 minutes long) illustrating the subject, characters, setting and the style of their project. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A with the jury.
