PITCH BALKAN 2018 call for projects
Do you have a story that echoes a local, national or a cultural issue of regional relevance? Are you daring to find your authentic voice and bring a refreshing perspective? Has it been hard to find support elsewhere, beside your own country, because your story is too small or too local and does not communicate well beyond the borders? Don’t let any of the above stop you.
Pitch Balkan is here and looking for stories that challenge the status quo, break the taboos and defy the comfort of clichés?
To embolden the Balkan production and encourage the cooperation between the regional filmmakers, as well as give a bust to Balkan staged stories, by attracting projects to be shot in the region, BFM is pleased to announce a call for projects to present at Pitch Balkan during the Balkan Film Market that takes place 3 – 7 October 2018 in Tirana, Albania.
