WarnerMedia Narrative South Pitch Open Call is accepting both short and feature-length projects from narrative filmmakers across the American South.
Up to six finalists will be selected to present their projects at a live, virtual pitch event to a panel of industry judges, scheduled for Wednesday, October 13. Each pitch team will have 4 minutes to present their project, which will be followed by a short, moderated discussion with a tailored jury of industry professionals.
Each of the 6 finalist projects selected to pitch in the WarnerMedia Narrative South Pitch Open Call will receive $1000 toward their individual projects.
The winning pitch will receive an “invitation only” opportunity to apply for an artist grant from the content innovation hub, WarnerMedia OneFifty. This grant will be used to amplify the content and create materials to be used during the pre-development phase of the project.
Eligible narrative projects can be in any stage from development to post-production. Please do not submit with completed or close to completed projects.
Filmmakers living and working in Alabama, Arkansas, District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia are eligible to apply.
Deadline: September 3, 2021
