European Short Pitch is an initiative aimed at promoting the European coproduction of short films. It combines a scriptwriting workshop in residency and a Coproduction Forum bringing together scriptwriters, directors and industry professionals from all over Europe.
As ESP always aims to be at the forefront of the ever-changing needs of the short film industry, the Coproduction Forum also dedicates a space for projects in post-production to supply the selected filmmakers with a platform to find a co-producer, to complete the film and to promote it on a European level.
Selected on the basis of the quality and the potential of their short film projects, 2 European talents will pitch and showcase their works-in-progress in front of the panel of professionals invited for the Coproduction Forum.
