"So You Think You Can Pitch?" -
The 4th annual collaboration between the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival and Charles Street Video pitch competition is back! http://www.reelasian.com/news_details.php?id=142
* So you think you have a brilliant idea for a short film?
* So you think it's the recession that's keeping you from making your film a reality?
* So you think you and your team can go through the intensive Pitch Clinic boot camp and pitch like a pro in front of a live audience?
Then get ready, get set...APPLY NOW!
Once again this year, ten brave teams of finalists will present their pitches in front of three judges and a live audience. Two winning filmmaking teams will walk away with amazing prize packages that will help them kick-start and/or finish their short film. The two prize packages of over $10,000* for the Emerging Category and $18,000* for the Established Category cover High Definition or Standard Definition production and post services, artist's fees and a one-year membership at Charles Street Video (CSV).
We welcome all good films and film ideas! Your film can be dramatic, documentary or experimental, up to 30 minutes in length. Don't forget it must feature an Asian in a key creative role in front or behind the camera.
So make a film with an amazing prize package and expert guidance from our industry professionals! The winning teams will also get the opportunity to have their films considered for screening at the 2010 Reel Asian Film Festival.
