Have you got a great idea for a movie?

This is it!

Your chance to pitch your movie idea directly to a panel of film industry executives and the toughest critics of all, a Live Audience.

About. Live! Ammunition! Is Raindance's most acclaimed signature event. Audience get the chance to pitch their movie idea directly to a panel of top film executives. To the people who matter. To the people who buy scripts and decide what will be made and what won't. To pitch, participants just drop a fiver in the hat, and the floor is theirs. They have two minutes to convince the panelists to read their script or make their film. They can and will be gonged off if they are boring! The winner gets all the cash!

Improve your pitching skills and get instant feedback. Past Pitches that have gone into production include Meet The Parents (1994), 51st State (1995), Siamese Cop (1996) and White Bhaji (2001).

The panel can, and will, gong you off if they get bored.But they have to give two good reasons why.

The Prizes

As is tradition the winning pitch on the night will take the total cash in the hat. To pitch, book your ticket, pre-register your pitch and drop a fiver in the hat on arrival.
