The Baltic Pitching Forum is a unique opportunity for Baltic film and film directors and producers to present their short film projects to European film producers, TV and film festivals, as well as other industry experts for further cooperation and funding. Baltic Pitching Forum takes place in two stages. The first day is a seminar and meetings with European film industry experts, while on the second day - project presentations.

Projects can be submitted to the forum by filmmakers and / or producers from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania who have already completed at least one short film and are currently working on their next project.

During the forum one project will be selected by the international panel to receive travel to the European short film co-production forum “Euro Connection”, which will be part of the 41st Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival held at the beginning of 2019. The same panel will also choose a project to take part in the scriptwriting workshop and co-production event “European Short Pitch” by NISI MASA which will take place in 2019. National jury will select one more project which will be given Lithuanian Producers MEDIA Award (1000 €), initiated by the Creative Europe Desk Lithuania MEDIA office.

The event is organized by the Lithuanian Short Film Agency “Lithuanian Shorts” in association with the Riga International Short Film Festival 2ANNAS (Latvia), Riga International Film Festival (Latvia), Estonian Short Film Center (Estonia) and Tallinn Black nights Film Festival (Estonia).

The project is supported by Lithuanian Film Centre and Creative Europe Desk Lithuania MEDIA office.
