Perfect your pitch!

The Pitch Masterclass is your chance to learn film pitching from the experts at The Pitch Film Fund. This session will cover the key aspects of effective pitching and the common mistakes you should avoid when presenting your work to a potential collaborator.

The masterclass will culminate in a live pitching session, where three filmmakers will have the opportunity to put what they’ve learned into practice. You’ll get to pitch your idea to the room and get feedback from our BFI NETWORK team and The Pitch Film Fund.

The Pitch Masterclass takes place in Leeds from 16:00 - 17:30 on Tuesday 27 June. Places are free, but limited - book yours below.
