Live! Ammunition! - Pitching Competition

It's back!

We’ve teamed up with Final Draft to host our Berlinale Live! Ammunition! script pitching competition hosted by Elliot Grove and special guests at HomeBase Lounge on Friday 12th February!

Your chance to pitch your movie idea directly to a panel of top film executives. These are the people who matter. They are the people who buy scripts - they are the people who decide what will be made and what won't.

To pitch, just drop a fiver in the hat, and the floor is yours. You have two minutes to convince the panelists to read your script or make your film. They can and will gong you off if you are boring! The winner gets all the cash! AND the winner and two runners up will receive free Final Draft software and a goodie bag!
