“Let’s pitch some shorts” delegates Croatian short film project to Baltic Pitching Forum 2024


The Creative Europe MEDIA Desk Offices from Croatia, Georgia, Greece, and Serbia together with the Malta Producers Association and Deputy of Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Cyprus jointly organised the workshop and pitching forum “Let’s Pitch Some Shorts!” which took place from 1-4/7/2024 in Zagreb, and in partnership with the VERN’ University and Kaptol Boutique Cinema.

The focus of the workshop was to guide professionals and provide adequate answers to questions about the most effective ways of preparing and presenting one’s project to the professional public – producers, distributors, and sales representatives, but at the same time to the public. The experienced and renowned German film producer Roshanak Behesht Nedjad, whose recent films ‘Mission Ulja Funk’ (2021) and ‘Delegation’ (2023) premiered at Berlinale Generation, oversaw implementation of the workshop. After the end of the workshop,  the pitching forum was the event’s culmination.

On the occasion of the 12th edition of the Baltic Pitching Forum, with Croatia as its guest country and in partnership with the Creative Europe MEDIA Desk Office Croatia, one short film project presented at this year’s ‘Let’s Pitch Some Shorts!’ has been awarded the participation right at the Baltic Pitching Forum 2024.

The prize was given to the short fiction project “Just One Thing” by Croatian screenwriter and director Daria Stilin. This project was selected for its heartfelt and bittersweet portrayal of intergenerational love and acceptance, as well as its touching exploration of the desire for redemption and human connection.

The “Let’s Pitch Some Shorts!” jury consisted of Morana Ikić Komljenović (producer / Little Red Dot), Laurent Crouzeix (Head of Euro Connection / Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Market), Kenan Musić (producer and director of the Youth Film Sarajevo Festival), and Chiara Bardella (Sayonara Film).
