The Edinburgh Pitch is the only international documentary pitching forum in Scotland. It is aimed at independent filmmakers and companies developing and raising finance for creative feature documentaries and considering international co-productions.

The Edinburgh Pitch focuses on connecting, not competing, on passion, not pressure. In a supportive lab-like environment, 12 carefully selected participants will take part in an online preparatory workshop a few weeks before making their formal online pitch to an industry panel (Tuesday 15 June) and attending online one-to-one meetings with decision makers the next day (Wednesday 16 June).
