Baltic Pitching Forum

The Baltic Pitching Forum is a unique platform of networking and bringing the latest short film projects from the Baltics into the spotlight. The main goal of the Forum is to facilitate interaction, cooperation and coproduction between short filmmakers from Baltics and the rest of Europe.

Since 2013, the Forum has created a space where film directors and producers can present their short film projects in order to attract active European producers, TV commissioners, fund representatives, VoD programmers and distributors.

Eligible participants – Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian film directors and/or producers who have finished at least one short film project and are now developing a new project which is fiction/animation short film up to 30 minutes and aimed for an international audience.

The Baltic Pitching Forum consists of an online script consultation and a three-day training and pitching event alongside one-to-one meetings with film professionals from all over Europe. Individual consultation with an experienced scriptwriting expert takes place the first week of September. Forum event is held on October in Vilnius.

The international 7-member panel selects two Best Short Film Projects, one is awarded with participant rights at the European Short Film Co-production Forum EURO CONNECTION that is a part of the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival and other is awarded with participant rights at European Short Pitch organised by NISI MASA. Lithuanian producers’ jury will select one more project which will be given Lithuanian Producers MEDIA Award (1000 €).
