Initiated by RADIO TELEVISION SUISSE (RTS) this pitching session aims to promote a documentary project in its development stage. Producers and filmmakers present their selected projects in front of a Jury of professionals and the audience.

The choice of the award-winning project is based on its necessity for financing, in the prospect of a long and complicated development, as well as our usual selection criteria, such as: the team’s potential and whether or not the project’s topic and creativity are interesting. The awarded project will be announced at the Soirée RTS. The prize amounts to CHF 10’000.
