The Edinburgh Pitch is aimed at international independent filmmakers and production companies raising finance for ambitious and urgent feature documentaries in late development, production or post-production. In a supportive lab-like environment, the 12 selected projects will be invited to take part in a preparatory workshop before pitching to an industry panel on Tuesday 28 May and being offered one-to-one meetings the next day.

We’re delighted to be welcoming representatives BBC Storyville, BFI Doc Society, IDFA, MUBI, Netflix, Inmaat Foundation, Screen Scotland, Sundance Festival, SVT, and a few more to be announced soon!
