Power to the Pixel’s Project Forum launched The Pixel Pitch, a ground-breaking new marketplace for cross-media stories – stories that can span film, tv, online, mobile, gaming – which takes place at Power to the Pixel’s 2009 London Film Festival event. The best new UK and international projects will be introduced to financiers, distributors, tech cos., press and promoters in a day of pitches in front of an open audience and one-to-one business meetings.
The launch saw four leading independent filmmakers present cutting-edge projects that gave a flavour of those to be selected at The Pixel Pitch.
BREATHE by YOMI AYENI (UK)
AS THE DUST SETTLES by ARIN CRUMLEY (US)
DARK FIBRE by JAMIE KING (UK)
HIM by LANCE WEILER (US)
These filmmakers are taking advantage of the growth of new tools, platforms, services and devices to develop new ways of telling stories. These projects extend the opportunities to reach and interact with wider audiences and to build new partnerships with financiers, promoters and distributors.
The current marketplace can no longer profitably service the vast majority of independent and specialist films. Consumers are interacting with media in new ways and with ever-changing devices and services.
The Pixel Pitch will be the first film market that finds new solutions for the future of storytelling, financing and distribution of independent films.
