Call for Entries: Emerging Directors’ Spotlight and Pitch Competition
Hosted by Regent Park Film Festival
Deadline: October 14th at 11:59 pm
The Regent Park Film Festival (RPFF) is inviting up-and-coming filmmakers to submit their short films and project proposals for our Closing Night event, the Emerging Directors Spotlight and Pitch Competition!
Part showcase and pitch event, this exciting platform highlights the best of Canada’s emerging talent, who then pitch their next project to a jury of industry experts.
This year, there will be two categories, SCRIPTED and UNSCRIPTED. One winner in each category will receive a development deal from CBC* and $1000 from RBC.
If you wish to be considered in both the SCRIPTED and the UNSCRIPTED categories, you must complete a separate application form and pitch for each. You will be a finalist in only one category.
The Emerging Directors’ Spotlight and Pitch Competition is free to enter, open to all ages and directors, producers and creators of all genres and styles.
We highly encourage submissions by filmmakers from marginalized communities (Black, Indigenous, Person of Colour, Person with Disabilities, LGBTQSAA+, Women) and films that feature these communities.
