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 pitch meeting with the film consultant from Odense Film Workshop via mail: filmkonsulent@ofilm.dk
  • You need to bring your attachments to the meeting if you have not uploaded them via the application form. We haven’t read your application before the meeting.
  • At the meeting: You have 7 mins to pitch your idea – the consultants have 7 mins for response and questions
  • After the meeting the consultant reads your material and decides the extent of the support
  • If you get a letter of commitment, we agree on the development from here
  • If you get 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.

Submit the application form online – it is saved through out. All attachments must be uploaded as a single PDF file at the end of the application form – alternatively, this information can also be brought to the pitch meeting.
