Guionistes Associats de Catalunya is calling for entries for their VIII Pitching Forum for feature films, to be held as part of Cinema Pendent at l’Alternativa 2021. Projects should be submitted in Spanish or Catalan.
Submissions will be accepted until Thursday 29 July 2021. An expert committee appointed by GAC will pick between four and eight projects to take part in the event. An additional project will be picked from Mentoring Projects at l'Alternativa Professionals and added to the shortlist.
The shortlisted screenwriters will receive coaching for content development and take part in attend a collective pitching workshop (last year, Neus Rodríguez and Fernanda Rossi 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 2020, the committee was made up of representatives of TV3, TVE, Buendía Estudios and Avalon.
We shall be following public health guidelines at all times: if the event cannot take place in person, it will be held online.
The VIII GAC Pitching Forum is possible thanks to the support of the Audiovisual Writers Partnership Forum (FAGA), Fundación SGAE, Institut Català de les Empreses Culturals (ICEC), Institut de Cultura de Barcelona (ICUB) and Institució de les Lletres Catalanes (ILC).
