TriForce Short Film Festival and Professor Stefan Allesch-Taylor CBE present: Pitch it!

TriForce Short Film Festival and Professor Stefan Allesch-Taylor CBE present: Pitch it! | A chance for short filmmakers to win funding for their next film!

TriForce Short Film Festival have teamed up with London based financier, entrepreneur and philanthropist, Professor Stefan Allesch-Taylor CBE to give UK based filmmakers the opportunity to win funding for their next project.

The competition will be looking for filmmakers to pitch an idea for a short film, with the finalists getting to pitch live to Allesch-Taylor’s team at the TriForce Short Film Festival on Saturday 1st December at BAFTA. Successful filmmakers will have one year to finish their film.

Allesch-Taylor set up a £1m short film fund in 2017 and has already funded over 25 films from this initiative. He is looking to “instil a sense of entrepreneurship into short form content” and would like to see applications not just from projects looking for full funding, but also from projects that may have some funding already in place but need some more to get ‘over the line’.

The Festival Director of TriForce Short Film Festival, Minnie Ayres, said, “we’re very excited to build on our partnership with Stefan Allesch-Taylor. This is a fantastic opportunity for filmmakers to bid for funding for their project and we can’t wait to see the range of applications. We’re looking for ideas with something to make them stand out, whether that’s an undiscovered talent attached, or a really original idea.”

If you’re interested in applying, submissions are open from 3rd October – 2nd November. You can find all the details on how to apply here.
