The sixth Bašta fest, with the support of Film Center Serbia, introduced a new industry program – a free workshop for project pitching (for short fiction films up to 30 minutes) meant for young film directors from Serbia – Bašta Pitch! This workshop will be organized for the second time on Bašta Fest 2021.
From the selected applicants, the mentor chose five projects and the film directors work with the mentor and the guest lecturer in order to prepare the final pitch (presentation) on the final day of the festival when the jury chose the winner. The winner of Bašta Pitch receives financial support of 500€ to kickstart the realization.
The idea for this project is to grow and to have international participants from the Balkan region, Europe and the whole world in future. The reason for that is that pitch workshops are not so common in the short film industry, especially in Balkans.
