The BTFC Pitch
*Please note, the application window has closed. Applicants have already been selected to pitch their projects to our judges.
The anticipated BTFC PITCH SESSION is BACK – with a twist! We saw lots of productions, ideas, and projects get put on pause due to COVID but at BTFC we will always find a way to help the members of our community #MakeYourWork!
Why Pitch? That’s easy.
Let’s say you have a script or even an idea that you are developing. But how do you take that script or idea and actually build momentum? How do you attract collaborators who will help to make it a reality? One of the best steps you can take is to pitch.
Pitch sessions are about coming together to hear what we all are working on, pitching new ideas, discussing our needs to begin and finish projects, and helping to make it happen.
Let’s start the year strong! If you need help with your production, want to hop on a crew, want to be cast in a project, you should be in the room.
So how do pitch sessions work at the Black TV & Film Collective? It’s simple…
It Starts With Intros
We will introduce the event and our amazing panel of judges who will be reviewing all the pitches!
It’s extremely important to be there when the introductions start. This gives you an opportunity to learn more about the people in the room. There may be a writer, producer, composer, cinematographer, etc. who would make the perfect collaborator.
Next We Pitch
Pre-selected members will have an opportunity to PITCH their project or idea to our three judges! You will have three minutes to pitch your idea! Then, our judges will have an opportunity to ask you questions about your project, provide feedback, deliberate and ultimately choose our winners!
Last But Not Least – We Network
Following all the pitches, we then break into an informal session of conversation in breakout rooms with a pitch applicant of your choosing!
During this time, members who want to learn more about a project get a chance to speak to the applicants and ask questions about their project and any needs they might have. Many members have launched their projects in the BTFC pitch session.
We can’t help you with your projects if we don’t know about them. The BTFC community is here to help support you in finding the people and resources to make your films and creative projects.
MEMBERS ONLY: The application window to apply to pitch has closed.
*Note: The Pitch Event will no longer be in person to ensure we take care of one another and are as safe as possible.
