Get to know the film projects by young people from the creators! Teenagers present their screenplays at the Junior Pitch Forum!

The Cinemira International Children and Youth Film Festival is organizing the Junior Pitch Forum for the third time, aiming to showcase the topics that concern young people and what films they find interesting within their own age group.

During the summer, the National Film Institute’s Fast Forward Program and Cinemira held the Junior Script Lab, where teenage participants had the opportunity to develop their film ideas into screenplays with the assistance of professionals over a period of three weeks. Out of the completed works, 8 screenplays have been selected for presentation at the Junior Pitch Forum, where the creators can pitch their film concepts to a professional jury.

The student jury decides on the main prize, while the film industry jury provides feedback for each project.

Schedule of the Forum

The finalists present their film proposals. Each participant will have 4 minutes to convince the jury, consisting of film experts and children, about their film concept.

After the presentations, participants can engage in “speed dating,” where they can meet with producers, screenwriters, and directors

The grand prize is decided by the children’s jury. And the film professional jury will provide feedback on each project.
