DOCPITCH is returning to DocLands Documentary Film Festival!

Filmmakers are invited to submit their unfinished FEATURE (over 60’) documentary projects currently in development.

Up to five filmmakers with feature documentary projects will be selected to present a three-minute verbal pitch, three- to five-minute trailer and participate in a ten-minute Q&A with the audience, comprised of invited funders, organization representatives, distributors, broadcasters, and the general public.
All members of the audience will be given a ballot so they can vote on their favorite filmmaker pitch. After the presentations, the ballots will be collected and tallied with the winning project announced on site and presented with a $25,000. cash award plus a 2019 CFI Membership.
