Dedicated to film professionals from Romania and the Republic of Moldova, Transilvania Pitch Stop Workshop (TPS) aims to discover and support a strong selection of feature films projects, to provide training and a platform for presentation and networking for the directors and producers of the selected projects. TPS gives participants the chance to be part of a tailor-made script development workshop and training to support their projects through a public pitch event in the presence of potential international partners as well as in individual one-to-one meetings.
What kind of projects can be selected for Transilvania Pitch Stop?
We are looking for feature-length fiction film projects of first and second time Romanian and Moldavian directors. It is recommended to have a producer attached. The project should be in early stages of development.
Our main focus in the selection procedure will be on projects that present a high possibility of being made, combining this quality with artistic elements and a focus on low and micro budget indie features.
How does Transilvania Pitch Stop work?
A board of selection will be appointed and up to five feature film projects will be selected. When selected, director and producer are invited to participate in the Transilvania Pitch Stop custom made hands-on workshop during Transilvania International Film Festival.
Attending the workshops and public presentation is mandatory.
Working groups will be established - project team and trainers. The group work will focus on ways of packaging the project in order for the team to be prepared for the public pitch, as well as on script doctoring feedback. In addition, special attention will be given to the interaction between groups and to a better acquaintance with all the projects, the free exchange of ideas and opinions being heavily encouraged.
All teams will have the opportunity to finalize their experience in a public presentation in front of a number of potential international partners.
All participating projects will be showcased in a projects' booklet.
It is mandatory for all selected projects to mention in the ending credits: “developed with the support of Transilvania Pitch Stop” together with the official logo.
Transilvania International Film Festival reserves the right of first domestic screening of each project selected in the TPS program.
