4 Talent’s Pitch in Time Open for Entries
20 Dec 2007 :
The 2008 International Screenwriters Festival’s pitching event ‘Pitch In Time’ run in association with 4 Talent at Channel 4, is now open for entries.

Pitch In Time will give hopeful writers a chance to pitch their film or TV idea to an industry panel in front of a live audience at the event in Cheltenham, which takes place from July 1st -3rd.

As well as the opportunity to pitch an idea, finalists will also be able to network with other writers, producers, directors and developers.

Previous panels have included Oscar winner Julian Fellowes, writer of ‘Gosford Park’, and Michael Goldenberg, who penned ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’.

Part of the prize for shortlisted writers is a Pitching Masterclass during the festival with leading agent Julian Friedmann.

“Channel 4 has been at the Festival every year now, and each time I've been amazed at the quality of the programme,” said James Estill, Senior Producer, 4Talent.

Entrants must write down their pitch in 25 words or less, and on a separate page, expand the synopsis to 150 words and email pitch@screenwritersfestival.com.

Ten entrants will be shortlisted to attend the festival on Tuesday 3rd July, and have a coaching session on the Wednesday 4th July before the live pitching session. Three winners will be chosen from the ten pitchers, who will get a chance to discuss their ideas with Film4 executives.

All ten finalists will be interviewed and featured on the 4Talent website – www.channel4.com/4talent. Closing Date for entries is midnight Friday 29th February 2008 with the winners being informed week commencing Monday 17th March 2008.
