DIG Pitch 2022. Truth burns, again
With Susanne Reber
23 September 2022 9:30 - 13:00
A Pitch in pure international style, breathless and highly electrically charged.
On stage at the San Carlo theater, the finalist teams in the DIG Pitch category present their projects in front of the DIG Awards Jury, lined up just a few meters from them, and a high-profile audience of industry insiders. The host of the event will be internationally-renowned producer Susanne Reber.
Up for grabs for the winning project is a production prize of up to €15,000 to fund an investigative and reportage video project in development or pre-production.
For everyone else, the chance to be discovered by international television stations, production companies and talent scouts.
During the “sacred ceremony” of the Pitch, the authors of the finalist projects will be given 5 minutes to state in English the idea behind the documentary and 3 minutes to show a video teaser with English subtitles presenting the topic, characters, setting and style of the story.
The presentation will be followed by a series of questions from the Jury. In addition to the quality and originality of the subject, its relevance and execution, the Jury will consider the financial sustainability of the project.
Access is free of charge for everybody. The winning project will be awarded during the DIG Awards ceremony on Saturday 24th from 7 p.m. at Chiesa di San Carlo.
