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.

Apply Now!

Due to the popularity of this event, interested participants must apply to pitch. Only those who apply will be considered for a pitch session. 

Please complete the Face 2 Face Application Form and send it to by October 17th by 11:59pm (NDT).
