Guionistes Associats de Catalunya calls for entries for their VII Pitching Forum for feature films, to be held as part of Cinema Pendent at l’Alternativa 2020. This year poses unexpected challenges, but we must now raise our voices louder than ever to promote talent rooted in solid screenplays.
Submissions will be accepted until 30 July 2020. An expert committee appointed by GAC will pick between four and eight projects to take part in the event. These shortlisted screenwriters will also receive coaching for content development and take part in attend a collective pitching workshop (last year, Ana Sanz-Magallón and Marian Sánchez Carniglia tutored the projects).
Projects will be pitched to a professional committee and to an audience of production companies. After the event at l’Alternativa, attendees will be able to arrange one-to-one meetings with each project. In 2019, the committee was made up of representatives of TV3, Filmax, BTeam Pictures and the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
We shall be following public health guidelines at all times: if the event cannot take place in person, it will be held online.
The VII GAC Pitching Forum is possible thanks to the support of the Audiovisual Writers Partnership Forum (FAGA), SGAE Catalunya, Institut Català de les Empreses Culturals (ICEC), Institut de Cultura de Barcelona (ICUB) and Institució de les Lletres Catalanes (ILC).
