Sheffield Doc/Fest tours regional pitch workshops across the UK

Sheffield Doc/Fest organises special regional pitch workshops across the UK, offering complete preparation for getting your project funded at the festival's marketplace. In 2008, 6 highly-useful workshops were held in London, Cardiff, Belfast, Inverness and Sheffield.
These workshops will return in 2009 , in more areas of the UK.

Newcastle Workshop - February 2009
Sheffield Doc/Fest and Northern Film and Media invite you to a special 2-day documentary pitching and marketplace workshop
Sheffield Doc/Fest is inviting North-East documentary producers and filmmakers to attend a special FREE two-day workshop in Newcastle on February 26th and 27th, offering complete preparation for getting your project funded internationally, including at Doc/Fest’s Marketplace 2009
This workshop is an intensive introduction to the MeetMarket process, to all Marketplace activities at the festival, and to wider opportunities in international documentary pitching and funding. Over 2 days, we offer an exclusive window into the priorities of the international documentary market. This is a chance to learn what UK, European, North American and other decision-makers are looking for right now from you, culminating in a chance to pitch your idea to key UK commissioning editors at the end of the workshop.
“This workshop will aid anyone making documentary film and give you confidence to make your film”

“The best investment in time for directors and producers looking to sell their work”

“An extremely eye opening workshop that both informed me on the pitching process but also filled me with self confidence”

Taking place in Newcastle on February 26th and 27th, the workshop is an opportunity for producers and filmmakers in the North East to develop projects one-on-one with the Doc/Fest team, as well as peers. Led by international marketplace specialist Christina Burnett and featuring a chance to pitch to national TV commissioning editors, this is an invaluable opportunity to refine both your ideas and project presentation skills.
Projects can be at any stage of development. Last year's workshops led directly to 7 of the 21 UK projects eventually selected for MeetMarket. There are also many other opportunities to pitch your project at Sheffield if you are not in the MeetMarket and this workshop will help you prepare for all the market opportunities at the festival.
Places for this workshop are very limited. To express interest, and for more information, please email Marketplace Producer Charlie Phillips stating your Name and Company (or if you are freelance), along with a one-page pitch for the project that you’d like to work with at the workshop and apply to the Doc/Fest Marketplace with. Your project can be at any stage of development, for any platform, and any genre as long it is a factual project.
This workshop has been made possible through the kind support of Northern Film and Media
