Pitching sessions #Film4Change: the story to initiate change
Directors or audiovisual students! The festival puts the spotlight on your film projects with a societal or environmental impact.
The festival is a unique opportunity for actors of change to meet the audiovisual creators that the festival brings together: directors, producers and agencies. In 2020, priority will be given to bringing together professionals and honoring creations: pitching sessions, new formats etc.and the power of the image to inspire large-scale mobilization!
In order to support creation and storytelling about major environmental issues, and inspired by our friends from La Fabrique du Récit led by Magali Payen from the #OnEstPrêt collective as well as Cyril Dion's "Resist and Create" forum on May 17th in Cannes, the festival will once again offer pitching sessions as part of the 2020 professional program.
The principle is simple, as you probably know: directors and students pre-selected by the festival will speak for a few minutes successively in front of a professional panel of broadcasters. And patrons or producers will present a film project and gather precious advice and feedback, or even more if there is an affinity.
Several great stories have started on these #Film4Change pitching sessions organized by the festival for the past 3 years. For example, the first pitching session in 2018, led to a commitment from Ushuaïa TV on the film "Watt the fish" which is committed to the fight against electric fishing with Claire Nouvian's association Bloom. It was broadcast at the beginning of July 2019 on the channel as a bonus.
