      The Edinburgh Pitch 2019

      Entering its 13th year and running alongside the Edinburgh International Film Festival, the Edinburgh Pitch is the only international documentary pitching forum in Scotland. It is aimed at independent filmmakers and companies developing and raising finance for creative feature documentariesand considering international co-productions. The initiative focuses on connecting, not competing; on passion, not pressure. In a lab-like environment, 12 carefully selected participants will take part in a one-day preparatory workshop before making a formal public pitch in front of an industry panel, followed by one-to-one meetings with decision makers the next day. With an Observer Pass you can join us for the public pitch to find inspiration, learn how to present your project on an international platform and be amongst the first to discover some exciting new projects from the four corners of the documentary world.  The observer passes allow all-day access to the Edinburgh Pitch on Tuesday 18th June with lunch included. Purchase yours below!
