KIMFF x OWM: How to Pitch your Short Doc?

Join us for an inspiring conversation on what makes a good short doc, where to find funding, and how to get them in front of an international audience.

kimff and One World Media are partnering to talk about short documentaries, bringing together experts and practitioners in the field.
We’ll share tips on how to find powerful stories, what to think about when developing them, who to approach to get a commission, and when.
The conversation will cover key points to consider while pitching your short documentary to international platforms, and what to expect as an early career filmmaker.
This is also a great opportunity to learn more about OWM’s Fellowship programme for emerging filmmakers and journalists, with year-long mentoring, workshops, and a grant of £1000. Applications open until 29 March, more info here.
