We are pleased to announce our 2016 Face 2 Face lineup!

As a key component of the [Interactive] Film Industry Forum, the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival hosts the Face 2 Face Pitch Session, an annual event connecting filmmakers with industry leaders from across Canada and North America. Filmmakers can pitch their projects, obtain invaluable feedback and perhaps a deal or two!

Face 2 Face is the time to use your pitching skills and make your minutes really count. The participants are given 15-minute meetings to pitch their idea one-on-one with someone from an impressive line-up of broadcasters, funders, producers and distributors. They are waiting for you to wow them with your ideas for films, docs, television pilots, and also your web series, video game or interactive projects.

Due to the popularity of this event, interested participants must apply to pitch.Only those who apply will be considered for a pitch session. Apply for these coveted meetings with the application form below.

Please note that incomplete or late applications will not be considered. You may apply to meet with up with as many professionals as you’d like. We will try to accommodate your request, but we offer no guarantee of meetings as the appointment times are very limited.
