We have teamed up again with ShortsHD, a cable channel dedicated to short films, to bring you the second annual Pitch competition. We're inviting 25 filmmakers to pitch their newest short film idea at CMF Hollywood. Pitches must be under 2 minutes. Start rehearsing because we're awarding $3,000 to the best filmmaker and pitch to fund their short film, which will premiere on ShortsHD.
Send a 60-second reel to to firstname.lastname@example.org and 1-sentence tagline describing your movie idea by 11:59pm (PST) on Monday, June 16 to apply. The reel must be high quality and downloadable. We recommend sending via Google Drive, wetransfer, or a downloadable Vimeo link.
Pitches will be recorded on camera at CMF Hollywood and combined with your reel for a panel of judges who will determine which filmmaker will score $3,000 for their next short film.
