AnimatekaPRO Pitch 2017
Our new pitching competition is aimed at promoting new short animated films from the Ex-Yugoslavian region and helping them get a good start in the animation market circuit.
AnimatekaPRO Pitch is open for animated projects in development for single short animated films, less than 20 minutes long.
It will take place in Ljubljana on 4th and 5th December, the first days of the 14th edition of Animateka International Animated Film Festival (4-11 December 2017).
The AnimatekaPRO Pitch 2017 selected projects are:
Iris (director Lucija Božanić, producer Andrijana Vidaček, Zagreb Film, Croatia),
Lights&Shadows (director Rastko Ćirić, producer Milan Stojanović, Iva Ćirić, Sense Production, Serbia),
Liliana (director Milanka Fabjančič, producer Kolja Saksida, ZVVIKS, Slovenia),
Matija Dances (director Marko Dješka, producer Draško Ivezić, Adriatic Animation, Croatia),
Original Copy (director Sašo Sedlaček, producer Viva Videnović, Strup, Slovenia),
Stojko (director Petra Balekić, producer Draško Ivezić, Adriatic Animation, Croatia).
Pitching sessions will be preceded by a workshop led by expert tutor Anna Vášová, allowing the participants to discuss and/or fine-tune the strengths and weaknesses of their project as well as best pitching strategies.
On Tuesday, 5 December from 9.00 to 11.00 in Slovenian Cinematheque, each participating project team will have 10-minute slots to execute their pitching presentations. Members of the international jury (Györgyi Falvai - MOME, HU, Vanja Andrijević - Bonobostudio, HR, Jožko Rutar - Film producer, SI) will choose the winning project.
The winning project will have direct access to VAF Trebon 2018 without the need to undergo competitive pre-selection, provided they adhere to the rules of VAF Trebon, and will be assisted with travel and accommodation in Trebon and accreditation to the Anifilm festival.
The winning project will also have an opportunity to present their project to the participants of the CEE Animation Workshop, which will take place in Ljubljana at that time.
