The Pitch

Need a £30,000 film budget? Meet our unique adaptation challenge and you can have this film fund, with additional professional production support on top, to make your short film. We offer a host of other reasons to enter too, masterclasses, residential courses and runners up prizes.

Finalists will pitch live to top industry professionals. Once you’ve made your winning film, you will fly to Hollywood to meet top professionals such as Tim Williams (film score composer of The Book Thief and Guardians of the Galaxy) and Ralph Winter (producer of Adrift (2018), X-Men, Fantastic Four and Wolverine) who'll watch your film and give hints and tips on taking your skills to the next level.

Pitch it, film it, take it to Hollywood

“There are a lot of people walking around in London or Hollywood with ideas in their heads, but to actually get to execute your idea puts you in the top 5% ... it’s so hard to raise money, so hard to find £25,000 to shoot your film, it’s a great calling card.”
