Submissions open for the Sunny Side of the Doc & PiXii Festival Pitching sessions at Avant Première 2022!

For the third edition, Sunny Side of the Doc and PiXii Festival join forces with the IMZ International Music + Media Centre, the global network for the performing arts film industry and host of Avant Première to offer new pitching opportunities happening at Avant Première and Sunny Side of the Doc 2022!

ABOUT THE EVENT

Avant Première 2022 will shine a special spotlight on performing arts documentaries and will offer filmmakers and producers the possibility to take their projects further!
 
NEW! For the first time, a second pitching session exclusively dedicated to digital content will take place at Avant Première 2022.

One project issued from each pitching session will have the chance to pitch once again in front of an international expert jury at Sunny Side of the Doc / PiXii Festival,
taking place from 20-23 June 2022 in La Rochelle, and will win two free accreditations for #SSD22.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR?

PERFORMING ARTS DOCUMENTARY: We want linear documentary stories exploring any aspect of the performing arts – be it an artist’s portrait or a historical/genre specific documentary focusing on any music + dance content. Proposals in development or production that combine quality, originality + innovation are welcome.
 
DIGITAL CREATION: We are looking for native web formats, new media narratives and multi-platform content projects, as well as projects in 360, VR, AR, XR, Binaural Sound or Big Format (Dome) films in the genre of performing arts.

Submit your projects here.
 




 

HOW DOES IT WORK?  

 
The Sunny Side of the Doc / PiXii Festival + IMZ Selection Committee pre-selects 4 proposals per pitching session among all submitted projects, which are then eligible to be presented at the Sunny Side of the Doc / PiXii Festival + IMZ Pitching Session at Avant Première 2022.

In addition, the members of the Jury, consisting of international industry experts, can request a One-on-One Follow Up Session, in which further details can be discussed.

Moreover, one project within each pitching session will win the chance to pitch once again in front of an international expert jury at Sunny Side of the Doc / PiXii Festival, taking place from 20-23 June 2022 in La Rochelle, France, as well as two free accreditations each for the event.
