Saturday 19 March
Application Deadline, 5pm, 2 March
As part of Glasgow Short Film Festival 2016, taking place between 16 – 20 March, SUPERLUX will present a one day pitching workshop, giving 6-8 moving image artists the opportunity to screen their work to a panel of industry experts. The day will culminate in the selection of one artist, who will be awarded £400 as part of our new SUPERLUX Research and Development Scheme.
What is the work that goes into a film before it is made? How can you fund the early stages of your research? And what are the best ways to share ideas about your project as it develops?
This workshop will answer these questions, provide practical and professional advice, prepare you to ‘pitch’ your project, and: offer a cash award as part the SUPERLUX Pitch, a new initiative to support visual artists in developing ambitious moving image projects.
The SUPERLUX pitch is a day-long workshop for participants selected through open call. It will introduce artists to the methodologies of film production; forms of research and development; and advice on how to effectively pitch moving image projects to funders, partners and financiers. During the day, participants will have the opportunity to make a practice pitch, discuss and get feedback from the course conveners, other participants, and an expert panel who will award a new SUPERLUX Research and Development Award of £400 to the most promising project.
