DocTalk#1 – Funding a Film

Imagine our festival if we didn’t have filmmakers! They are an integral part of our event and with this in mind, we’d like to give a little back by hosting two DocTalks during the festival. These free shows provide a platform to meet and share ideas and are a great way to upskill. Anyone is welcome to attend, but filmmakers will get seating preference.

DocTalk#1 – Funding a Film

If you have a great idea for a film, you might be wondering how to convince potential funders to invest in your project. Pitching a film production concept is a crucial skill for any filmmaker, as it can make or break your chances of getting your film made. Gain insight and learn some tips and strategies on how to craft a compelling pitch that showcases your vision, your team, and your marketability.

Hear from people who fund films, and filmmakers who have received funding on how to pitch a project. Featuring: filmmakers Joe Murdie & Nick Stevenson, funders Andrew Reed (Panasonic) & Sarah Hunt (The North Face), facilitated by Deane Parker.
