To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Forum, Baltic Pitching Forum (BPF) is partnering with T-Port, an innovative non-profit online platform for short films, to give more spotlight to the BPF alumni and their works. From now on, industry professionals with a T-Port account will have an opportunity to watch BPF alumni films on the platform all year round.
The Baltic Pitching Forum alumni catalog showcases 17 short films from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania that were once pitched at the Forum. These animation and fiction films – which have already gained international recognition or started their journey around international film festivals – display themes specific to the Baltics and represent some of the most exciting filmmakers currently working in the region.
