SCENE & PITCH CONTENST
Women Making a Scene is introducing the 'Scene & Pitch' Contest in the Film Funding Corner of the 2020 festival. With this project, the filmmakers will submit one produced scene from a feature script concept, along with a two-minute pitch video explaining the film they hope to make. The winner of the contest takes home a production budget to help jump-start the creation of their feature film!
FILM BUDGET FOR THE WINNER
Other film competitions offer trips and small cash prizes to the makers of short films that have been produced under time and genre restraints. In the 'Scene & Pitch' Contest, WOMAS is offering a chance for filmmakers to realize their dreams of producing a feature film. This will create film jobs for people of all genders, and initiate positive change in a socially impactful industry.
The producers are hard at work securing sponsors for the 2020 grand prize, and the amount will be announced soon!
When submitting films to festivals or competitions, filmmakers have come to expect either no response, or a template-based mass email from headquarters if their film doesn't make the cut.
Women Making a Scene will be proactive on this front. Each submission turned in for the 'Scene & Pitch' portion will be thoughtfully replied to by our judging team. This feedback will ensure a positive learning experience that can be applied to the filmmakers' continued work.
