These pages are the terms and conditions (duh!) for The Pitch Film Fund (TPFF). It is boring but necessary. It may seem dull, but, like lettuce, or the book of Leviticus, there are some gems to uncover. Or eat!
Reading the Ts&Cs is just part of preparing yourself for making a submission to The Pitch. Do look across the whole website where, amongst other things, there’s inspiration, ideas, videos and other resources to help you into the world of The Pitch in anticipation of preparing your entry.
During the submission process you’ll be asked to acknowledge, section by section, that you have ‘read and understood’ the Ts&Cs; so - noting that the Fund’s rules are updated annually - grab yourself a comfy seat, a drink and a snack and read through the following rules.
By necessity, some of what follows is written in legal-speak, BUT we want these Ts&Cs to be crystal clear for you. So, if you’re unsure what something means while reading, drop us an email to ask for more info. As they say, the only stupid question is the one you don’t ask. So, as you embark on reading and absorbing the Ts&Cs, keep in mind, ‘It’s what you do right now that makes a difference.’ (‘Struecker’, Black Hawk Down). If you have questions, you know what to do.
The first thing to note is that The Pitch Film Fund is a project supported by a number of businesses and trusts and promoted by Bible Society, which is a registered charity (details per end of the Ts&Cs).
If you want to know why The Pitch Film Fund focuses on the Bible then check out the handily titled Why the Bible? page.
Anyway, onwards ...
The following are non-negotiable requirements of entry. By completing and submitting an official Entry Form (during the submission process), The Pitcher is agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions set out below. The Pitch Film Fund reserves the right to amend and alter these rules (‘Change(s)’). TPFF will give 7 days notice of such Change(s), if any. Pitchers shall have the right to withdraw their submission to TPFF in the event they don’t agree with the Change(s), such request to withdraw to be made in writing and within 10 workings days of notification of the Change(s).
