TCCF Pitching Workshop

All selected projects this year are eligible for the TCCF Pitching Workshop. It offers practical pitching experiences to project teams to understand market trends. Through practices, group discussions, and seminars, audiovisual industry professionals can enhance their skills and chances in international collaborations and co-productions.

Twelve instructors include film producer Ellen Havenith, Series Mania pitching trainer Michaela Sabo, and Taiwanese director John Hsu. They offer practice opportunities, group discussions, and individual consultations, so project teams can communicate creative concepts in a limited time, appeal to potential investors, and push for international cooperation.

TCCF Pitching Workshop will be conducted online and offline. Through online channels, participants can focus on their own projects. The two-day offline workshop will include group discussions and individual meetings to elevate stories and pitching skills.
