Applications open for Breaking Through The Lens pitching initiative

Posted Wednesday 20 Feb 2019

Need help accessing finance for your film? This wonderful Cannes Film Festival initiative helps connect female-identifying directors to top tier film investors. The programme is focused on practical actions and is a direct response to what the organisers, themselves female filmmakers, have encountered as barriers to their progress - access to finance. The 10 successful applicants will get the chance to pitch with their team at an event at the Cannes Film Festival - a guestlist-only event where the audience is limited strictly to people in film finance who are looking to fund female-led projects. All participants will then be connected via e-mail to funders that have shown interest in their project.

The deadline for applications is Monday 18 March, 2019.
