How to submit:
If your chapter is interested in submitting a project, write to Regina at email@example.com to request the submission form and link to uploading platform.
Each chapter is encouraged to promote diversity and fairness in their local selection processes.
For their pitch videos, projects are encouraged to identify and address possible aspects of inclusion, otherness, sustainability and equality in their stories.
The individual pitch video content must mainly focus on motivation (why you/why now), story core and the audience vision and context of the project.
It’s mandatory for every WIFTI chapter that presents a project to be pitched, to also present a high-profile person or a decision-maker (producer, financier, sales agent, distributor, studio rep, etc.) who commits to attend as an active pitch peer at the WIFTI Worldwide Pitch in mid December (date tba).
The aim of hosting this worldwide pitch event is to give global visibility and peer support to the participating projects.
