Best Pitching du Réel project

Trees Floating, Salomé Jashi

Expected release: February 2020

Giant ancient trees are uprooted and traded for much desired cash and sent to an adventurous journey through land and sea...


Objective

Since its creation, the purpose of Pitching du Réel is to help launch projects with artistic ambition and potential in the principal distribution markets. It is intended for young as well as experienced and acknowledged filmmakers. 

Our main target is to encourage international co-productions and to help finance outstanding documentary projects addressing an international audience. We offer the participants the opportunity to discuss the content and form of their project and to find out whether the project stands a chance on the market and what market that would be. The project teams may find international partners and financing support, discuss current questions of filmmaking, foster their knowledge and use the various networking possibilities in a pleasant, relaxed environment. 


Format

Fifteen feature-length film projects will be presented and discussed in round tables and one-to-one meetings with potential partners, commissioning editors, producers, distributors and funders.
