[ Call for Papers - Call for Entries ]

Call for Papers for the Central European Pitch Forum 2007 (CEPF), taking place during the 3rd Pécs International Film Festival between 30 September and 3 October 2007, organized by FadeIn, an independent initiative of young Hungarian screenwriters, along with the Motion Picture Public Foundation of Hungary - MMK.
It is to be the first occasion for emerging screenwriter talents from the region but also from all over Europe to meet prominent European producers in the hope of facilitating actual and long-running work relationships and an international network of young professionals in order to give a long overdue boost to the creative community in the continent as well as in the region.
The call for projects is open to individual screenwriters and production teams with a feature film project from every MEDIA country and the Balkan countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, FYROM, Montenegro, Serbia). The CEPF is open for screenwriters who do not yet have a producer attached to their feature film projects!
