BlackStar Pitch will showcase a group of 8 filmmakers, who will be selected based on their applications due July 12. The filmmakers will pitch their works-in-progress to a distinguished panel of funders, executives, distributors and producers. The 8 finalists will also have a chance to meet with a minimum of 2 panelists in one-on-one sessions prior to the Pitch contest to get direct feedback and advice on their projects.
The panelists will choose the best pitch, to be announced during the awards ceremony on August 26.
Each pitch will last 7 minutes (including video reel) followed by 10 minutes of constructive feedback. The pitch is designed to connect industry professionals with new voices in the independent film community.
