The Pitch

The Pitch is an online short film competition, which gives emerging film talent the chance to turn their concept into reality with the support of production and professionals. And it comes with a budget worth in excess of £40,000.

Entering is simple: pitch a short film concept that brings the Bible to life. It might be based on a Biblical story, character, or theme. The winning concept will be filmed, and the winner will go to Hollywood to meet industry professionals – including Studio executives, independent production companies and a variety of top industry names – who will watch the finished film and offer their feedback and advice.

The Pitch:

  • Invests over £40,000 in emerging film talent each year.
  • Provides an opportunity to network with emerging and established film makers.
  • Looks for original and outstanding concepts showing a creative engagement with the Bible.
  • Is suitable for those aged 18 and over, from any background (no previous familiarity with the Bible is necessary).
