Engine Room Pitch Workshops
Get ahead of the game by preparing your project for this year's markets and festivals.
The Engine Room Pitch Workshop is a unique 2-day project development and pitching experience for any documentary filmmakers and cross platform creatives seeking UK and international commissions, co-production and market intelligence. It is also an exceptional networking opportunity.
Created by leading international pitch trainer Christina Burnett of Wide Eye Pictures, these workshops have been successful in Ireland, Brazil and Abu Dhabi as well as the UK. Last year's Sundance hit Knuckle, Toronto Documentary Forum success Driven, Hot Docs and Doc/Fest selection Despicable Dick And Righteous Richard and SXSW and Doc/Fest favourite Sound it Out have all been developed through an Engine Room Pitch Workshop.
"It's true to say you need a strong project, good materials and a great team but in a business where presentation and storytelling are everything the advice and experience we gained at that workshop turned a great project into a winning pitch“ Rob Fletcher, Producer at Driven
"I would highly recommend this workshop to everyone - whether a first time filmmaker or a company director. The skills I have learnt will stay with me for life"ť - Claire Titley, Director
Intense, friendly and focused, the workshop develops real projects, which are then presented to 2 commissioners for feedback.
Our workshops will return soon. If you're interested in bringing one to your region, email firstname.lastname@example.org
