FFO Nights presents Student Pitch on Friday 3 September

Submit your film!

Every year the Ostend Film Festival focuses on the future of the Flemish film industry, the young filmmakers. On Friday the 3rd of September 2021 we will organise the Student Pitch in collaboration with Sabam for Culture for the ninth time. Normally, this pitch would take place during our first winter edition in January, but due to the closure of the cinemas, FFO has decided to organise the Student Pitch during the FFO Nights. 

Are you a film student at one of the Flemish film schools and can you use a little push to produce your graduation bachelor or master film? Then register here before 22.08.21. You can find the rules here. 

From all entries the 10 best projects will be selected. These students can come and pitch their bachelor or master project. The professional jury will judge the projects on the basis of previous work and the pitch. Five students will be awarded. 


  • Sabam for Culture awards 5 of the 10 selected projects with a production fee of €1,000.
  • Camalot gives 3 winners of the Student Pitch a prize of €4.000 worth of audiovisual material.
  • Flow offers one of the projects a post-production package for the completion of the short film pitched.
