The Big Pitch Competition will see individuals compete for cash and development opportunities in a range of categories including TV scripted and unscripted, film for theatrical release, digital media storytelling and gaming.
In partnering with Innoversity, the CFC will work with the Big Pitch winners to provide a two-day production and performance mentorship workshop with a series of scheduled meetings with faculty and strategic partners to assist teams with their production goals.
Selected winners will also receive analytical and practical feedback from CFC’s internationally renowned faculty and selected industry representatives. As well, selected teams will receive networking opportunities throughout the year.
“The Canadian Film Centre’s development opportunities are an invaluable addition to THE BIG PITCH competition. Their commitment to Innoversity is a testament to building a sustainable industry where organizations come together and Canadian media creators are supported. The CFC’s prizes are an incredible investment of their renowned instructors, talented staff and important resources,” says Innoversity co-founder Cynthia Reyes.
In addition to the Big Pitch Competition, Innoversity Creative Summit 2012 will feature industry sessions and panel discussions about the future of Canada’s media and how creators from diverse cultural background can play a role in changing the complexion of the country’s media landscape.
