Pitch Fund

For you who need funding for a simple project

The Pitch Fund is for both novice and experienced film-makers who want to get going quickly with a simple project. Alternatively, funding can also be sought in order to test out an excerpt from a larger project.

Application Demands

  • Deadline: Ongoing
  • Support: Max. 2,000 DKK + production equipment and facilities
  • Procedure: Submit an application via the form on this page
  • Book a meeting with the director / film consultant from Odense Film Workshop• You need to bring your attachments to the meeting if you have not uploaded them via the application form
  • At the meeting: You have 7 mins to pitch your idea – the consultants have 7 mins for response and questions
  • Then you leave while the consultant goes over the material and decides the extent of the aid
  • If you get a yes, we agree on the next stage
  • If you receive a rejection, we encourage you to apply again with a new project
  • Alternatively, you may be given a ‘Letter of interest’, which means that we are interested in seeing you again for another meeting. In this case, you need to work more on the project before we decide if we can support it.

We pay attention to how the project develops your talent, the quality of the story, and that the project contributes to the film environment on Funen. 

NB: We don’t support projects that are already in production.
