STUDENT PITCH

Cinema is a wonderful but expensive medium, that is why the festival, in collaboration with SABAM, wishes to support and give incentive to future film makers.  Twenty film students from Flemish film schools (KASK, RITCS and LUCA-campus Narafi, Sint-Lukas and MAD) are in the running to win a desirable monetary prize for the production of their Bachelors or Masters degree graduation film.  

The winner receives a production fund of €2 500, sponsored by Telenet. The first and second runners-up win € 1 250. In addition, the three finalists are rewarded with coupons from Camelot, worth €4 000, to rent audiovisual equipment. The top 10 film projects are awarded a production grant of €1 000 by SABAM. One student is granted a post-production package, provided by Filmmore.
