Master`s Pitch 2024

Banner Masters Pitch

The Master's Pitch is a unique format for training and collaboration, initiated by Documentary Campus and DOK.fest München. In the form of a public pitch, seven selected teams will present their documentary projects in the development stage to industry experts. 

As an interactive platform, the Master's Pitch provides constructive feedback and offers the chance to initiate the development of new film projects in a collaborative atmosphere. The audience, including filmmakers, producers, sales agents and representatives of major broadcasters and platforms, will also be involved and invited to provide feedback on the pitches.

This year`s Master`s Pitch is curated and moderated by documentary consultant Gitte Hansen
