The Engine Room Pitch Workshop is a unique 2 day project development and pitching workshop for documentary/factual filmmakers and producers seeking Irish and international commissions and market intelligence. It is also an exceptional networking opportunity. Created by leading international pitch trainer Christina Burnett of Wide Eye Pictures, the format has been successful in the UK, Brazil and Abu Dhabi.

Intense, friendly and focused, the Engine Room Pitch Workshop develops real projects and trailers, which are then presented to two Irish commissioners for feedback.

Delegates range from award winning series producers and directors to first-timers and the structure enables delegates at any stage of their career to understand what makes a project succeed and to maximise their own opportunities in future.

All projects must be submitted by the deadline of Tuesday 28th September. Details about how to apply are on the web site.
