Project Pitches Q&A
The Beijing International Film Festival (BJIFF) Project Pitches has started to solicit entries. You may have some questions related to it. Here is the Q&A for you.
Q: What is Project Pitches and what help can it bring to my project?
A: The Project Pitches is a platform for young Chinese directors and new films to show themselves. The BJIFF Project Pitches has made continuous progress in the past decade and gradually established a project transaction market integrating "training-selection-support-negotiation-incubation-tracking-display". If you have a good script or project, please send it to the BJIFF Project Pitches to truly realize “turning stories into films!”
Q: How is the Project Pitches jury organized and what are the most important characteristics in the selection?
A: The jury is composed of outstanding practitioners who are active in the front line of creation and production, including senior screenwriters, directors, and producers. Professional jury member will review and score each registered project that meets the requirements. And then fair and strict review meetings will be held to ensure that the shortlisted projects are unanimously approved by the jury at all stages. In the selection process, we always insist on looking for the best talents and the best stories. Good works and talents will not be ignored in the Project Pitches.
Q: I only have one script without any director, producer or team, can I apply for it?
A: Of course! For feature film with a complete script for shoot, a 5,000-word synopsis of the story and a complete script are required for application. We encourage projects that have not yet completed all financing activities and have not participated in other film markets or project pitches activities to participate.
Q: Can the same applicant register multiple projects?
A: Yes, we have further upgraded the application system this year. Applicants can register up to 5 projects for an account. Go and add more projects quickly.
Q: How do I know if my project has been successfully registered?
A: After confirming that the project information and related materials are complete and correct, the Organizing Committee will send a confirmation receipt through email. And receiving the receipt means that the project has entered the review process. If the registered project information and related materials do not meet the requirements, the Beijing Film Marketing Department of the BJIFF will contact you by mail or telephone and review the resubmitted materials.
