Pitch at the Schlingel Festival for Children and Young Audiences

Taking place from 10 to 17 October in Chemnitz, Germany, this MEDIA-funded festival for children and young audiences is looking for projects for two of its industry initiatives: 

  • Pitch Your Treatment 

This runs as part of the industry forum and is aimed for writers to present their treatments for projects they are wanting to develop. 10 treatments will be presented at the pitching sessions on 15 and 16 October to invited guests.

Projects have to be at treatment stage, they should be submitted by writers and need to have a producer attached. The session is open to full length animated or live action features aimed at under 12s.

The assessment will be based on the strength and originality of the story, the international potential, the quality of information, the evidence of social impact and the commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Deadline to apply is 24 August 2020. More info.

  • Coming Soon 

Co-organised by the Creative Europe Desk Berlin-Brandenburg, this session will present five to six upcoming children's feature films supported by MEDIA (in production, post-production or completed) to industry professionals, festival programmers and buyers attending the festival. The closed circle, work in progress presentation, aims to help the showcased films to find distribution partners and/or festival interest.
