European Short Pitch is an extraordinary project focusing mainly on promotion and supporting short film coproductions in Europe.
ESP is comprised of three crucial elements: scriptwriting workshop, online session and coproduction forum. The project has functioned for 12 years and since then it’s been presenting 220 projects, including 82 productions of short films. The project organizers are NISI MASA – an association which embraces various organizations supporting young talents and their short film projects. At the local level the main role is played by Fundacja Ad Arte which is helping in organizing coproduction forum in Poznan during the Short Waves Festival from 20th till 25th of March 2018.
ESP’s main goal is searching for young talents in film industry, promoting their further actions, strengthening film industry and creating a constant international dialogue, which focuses on building relations and exchanging experiences with European film industry representatives. The outcome of ESP is awarding the best authors of presentations with the money prize of 1000 euros. The choice is made by an exceptional international jury. The event gathers not only very talented young participants from Europe, highly qualified tutors, but also a wide circle of international film industry members.
This year Fundacja Ad Arte is ready to play an important part once again by organizing coproduction forum of ESP within Short Waves Festival, which will take place from 20th till 25th of March 2018 in Poznan.
