Baltic Pitching Forum is a unique platform of networking and bringing the newest short film projects from the Baltics into the spotlight.

This Forum creates a space where film directors and producers can present their short film projects in order to attract active European producers, TV commissioners, fund representatives, festival or VoD programmers and distributors.
