Baltic Pitching Forum calls for short film projects
The 7th edition of the Baltic Pitching Forum, organised by Lithuanian Short Film Agency “Lithuanian Shorts,” is looking for short film projects. This year it expands the horizon by inviting Finland as a Guest Country. Accordingly, three Finnish short film projects will be selected for participation alongside Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian filmmakers. The event welcomes participants that are either directors or/and producers of the submitted project.
In 2016, Lizete Upīte’s film “Riga’s Lilac” – featured in this year’s RIGA IFF: Short Riga Opening – was selected as one of the winners at the Baltic Pitching Forum 2016. Lizete Upīte was awarded with participant rights at the European Short Pitch 2017 organized by NISI MASA.
Latvian director-screenwriter Reinis Spaile, participant of the last year’s edition, recounts his experience last year: “For me it was a highly valuable experience, both in terms of pitching practice, as well as for meeting other Baltic screenwriters. Those were two intense days with trainings, lectures and two pitching sessions. And Vilnius is an amazing weekend destination!”
