About

The Baltic Pitching Forum is a unique platform of networking and bringing the newest short film projects from the Baltics into the spotlight.

This Forum creates a space where film directors and producers can present their short film projects in order to attract active European producers, TV commissioners, fund representatives, festival or VoD programmers and distributors.

The Baltic Pitching Forum is a two-day event. The first day of the Forum is dedicated to the pitching training. The second day is aimed to present the selected projects for the international panel of 7 members – professionals from the fields of festivals, TV, distribution, production and film commissioning. After the presentations, one-to-one meetings between invited film professionals and participants take place.

The main goal of the Forum is to facilitate interaction, cooperation and coproduction between short filmmakers from Baltics and the rest of Europe.
