There is great talent continually coming through in the film industry. From traditional film making to new tech concepts such as virtual reality, these new creatives are facing a tougher and tougher market to break into.
Getting the right support, exposure, and even funding for their ideas can, for some, seem like an impossibility. Some of the best filmmakers have given up their dreams to take up uninspiring jobs just to make ends meet.
We at That Film Festival do not want to let this talent go to waste anymore.
Submissions for London open soon. Sign up to our newsletter to stay informed.
To give new filmmakers a platform to access those whom could help turn their dreams and visions into reality.
We will be holding a number of showcases throughout the year in Berlin, Cannes, London and Marbella, playing our selected short films, mini-series and VR content, plus hosting networking opportunities at each event.
The overall single winner of these showcases, as voted by active film investors, will win funding of up to £1million to make their short film into a feature. The prize also includes 1 years marketing, sales and distribution.
The lucky winner will also be a part of a 9-part, uncensored documentary series following their journey to make their feature. That Film Festival will be following the winner’s journey through casting, filming, post production and sales and distribution, in a behind the scenes look of what it’s really like to be a first-time director.
This innovative and life changing competition paves way for a new process of identifying talented directors in an overcrowded industry. We are literally putting talent in front of investors, marketing directors, sales and distribution professionals.
