OCEANIA IMPACT PITCH for INDIGENATION

Presentation

The Oceania Pitch, created 10 years ago in partnership with the Association Tahitienne des Professionnels de l’Audiovisuel (ATPA), is reinventing itself in a new format. FIFO is delighted to relaunch this key event in its history. Over the past few years, the Festival and the audiovisual landscape in Oceania have evolved. As a result, the FIFO pitch has been rethought to offer this year.
The OCEANIA IMPACT PITCH for INDIGENATION. A moment of encounter, training and presentation for project leaders, broadcasters and producers to meet and give life to original and daring Oceanian audiovisual projects.
Documentary project developers will present their films to a panel of professionals and decision-makers from Oceania and Europe (festivals, producers, financiers, broadcasters).
After a week of workshops, the pitchers will present their project to the Oceania Impact Pitch jury: they will have 7 minutes (including the trailer) to convince them, followed by 7 minutes of discussion with the jury and the audience.
All the projects selected are in line with the values of FIFO and contribute to the preservation and enhancement of the indigenous cultures of Oceania.
