BlackStar Pitch will showcase a group of 8 filmmakers, who will be selected based on their applications due July 21. The filmmakers will pitch their works-in-progress to a distinguished panel of funders, executives, distributors and producers. The panelists will choose the best pitch, to be announced during the awards ceremony on Sunday August 4. Each pitch will last 7 minutes (including video reel) followed by 10 minutes of constructive feedback.
Attendance at the pitch session will be limited to festival passholders and special invited guests, including funders, producers, sales agents, and network executives.
Accepted filmmakers must provide their own travel to the Pitch session on August 1, 2019 in Philadelphia.
