Five projects have been selected for the EDN Pitch Pilot Workshop to be held in Galway in April with the support of the BAI Sectoral Learning and Development Fund.

Other interested applicants are invited to register for the open session on April 2nd, which wll focus on ‘How to create a great pitch pilot’ – click here for more information.

The five successful applicants for the full workshop are:

  • Colm Cille The Bold Saint Abú Media: Bríd Seoighe, Pierce Boyce & Shane Lawless 
  • We Shall not Rust - Ishka Films:  Alice McDowell & Julie Flavin
  • Sins of Ireland - Atom Films: Alex Fegan
  • Dazzled by Daylight Lifeblood Films:  Maurice O'Brien
  • Game of Truth - Domino Production / New Decade:  Sergio Ghizzardi

The EDN Pitch Pilot Workshop is an intensive 3-day workshop which will focus on the development of Pitch Pilots for these projects. During these three days, the selected teams will re-edit their Pilots and make crucial decisions regarding the visual approach to their stories. Six Observers will also participate in the Workshop.

The first morning of the Workshop on April 2nd will consist of a general information session on how to create a great Pitch Pilot. Pitching sessions have become a frequent tool for financing documentaries in development and consequently, the visual part of the pitch has become increasingly important. A pilot can either make or break a project being pitched for funding.

Using concrete examples of successful Pitch Pilots this plenary session will be presented by experienced Pilot Editor Jesper Osmund and EDN Film & Media Consultant Ove Rishøj Jensen.  This half-day presentation is available free of charge to all Documentary Filmmakers or anyone with an interest in the Creative Documentary.

The Pitching Pilot Workshop will take place at the Galway Bay Hotel, Salthill, Co. Galway and will run from the 2nd-4th April 2019.
