To mark our 10th Annual Film Festival, BFF is partnering with CBC and Front Row Insurance to bring you a very special Pitch Competition!
This year, there will be two categories, SCRIPTED and UNSCRIPTED. Three finalists in each category will have 3 minutes to virtually pitch their next project to two senior executives from CBC, who will provide feedback on the quality and feasibility of the projects presented and select the winning project.
Finalists will attend a pitch training session prior to the event, to help filmmakers to master the art of the pitch and provide them with an opportunity to hone their skills to ultimately sell their projects.
One winner in each category will get the opportunity to further develop their project with CBC and a $500 cash prize from Front Row Insurance to be put towards their production.
If you wish to be considered in BOTH the SCRIPTED and the UNSCRIPTED categories, you must complete a separate application form and pitch for each. You will be a finalist in only one category.
Breakthroughs Film Festival is mandated to exclusively support and showcase works by women and non-binary directors. We particularly encourage submissions by Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, 2SLGBTQIA+, Neurodiverse and Disabled Folks and projects that feature these communities.
