Pitchbox Sessions

The Belgian Fantastic Pitchbox Session is a pitch contest for Belgian genre film projects. It is a collaboration of the BIF Market/BIFFF with ARRF (Association des Réalisateurs et Réalisatrices Francophones), ASA (Association des Scénaristes de l’Audiovisuel) and UPFF (Union des Producteurs de Films Francophones), with the support of the Brussels Capital Region, the City of Brussels, Sabam for Culture and screen.brussels.

From all submissions, 10 projects are selected. These 10 participants can participate in workshops on how to pitch a project. During the BIF Market days, the 10 selected candidates get the chance to pitch their project to an (inter)national jury. The winner of this competition receives support in the further development of his or her project and is guaranteed a place in the Work In Progress selection of the BIF Market for the following year.

The first Pitchbox Session would normally have taken place during the fourth edition of the BIF Market in April 2020, but was finally held online in December 2020.

The second edition was held online during the 5th BIF Market.

Pitch submissions for the Pitchbox Session #3 are open from November 15, 2021
