Pitch, Please! Short Film Competition

At the Toronto festival, Inside Out presents Pitch, Please! – a crowdfunding style pitch competition designed to support filmmakers with short films in development. Up to 6 filmmakers can present a five-minute pitch to Inside Out audiences, who will have the opportunity to donate directly to the film in the room. The winner, chosen by Inside Out’s jury, will be selected to receive a guaranteed prize, but all competitors have the opportunity to walk away with cash support.
