PREMIERES OEUVRES PITCH SESSION

PRESENTED BY NETFLIX

A PITCH SESSION FOR FIRST FEATURE-LENGTH CANADIAN FILMS AT THE DEVELOPMENT STAGE

DEADLINE: AUGUST 1, 2021

For a third year, FNC Forum, the professional platform of Montreal Festival du nouveau cinéma, is launching its call for projects for the Premieres Oeuvres pitch session presented by Netflix, an event designated to Canadian feature length films at the development stage. The event will take place online, between October 6 and 17, 2021. Eight projects will be selected and the best pitch will receive a $10,000 CAD grant offered by Netflix.

This online event aims to support projects in development by connecting project holders with decision makers in the industry.  

Project exhibitors will have seven minutes to present their project pitch to a panel of experts. Once the session is over, participants will have the opportunity to meet the jury privately to answer any questions they may have and will benefit from individual meetings organised by the FNC Forum team.
