Have you got a great idea for a movie?
This is it! The Live!Ammunition! pitching competition returns to Raindance.

Your chance to pitch your movie idea directly to a panel of film industry executives and the toughest critics of all, a Live Audience.

The people on our Panel are the people who matter. They decide what will be made.

Pitching skills are the one skill often overlooked by writers, directors and producers. The purpose of this event is to hone your pitching skills by getting instant feedback. Past Pitches that have gone into production includeMeet The Parents (1994), 51st State (1995), Siamese Cop (1996) and White Bhaji (2001).

The panel can, and will, gong you off if they get bored. But they have to give two good reasons why.

How to Pitch
Sign up to attend and come armed with a £5 note to put into the hat. Fill in one of our pitching forms when you arrive and choose your slot.

Please note, the demand to pitch is high and admission does not guarantee you a slot to pitch. The best way to ensure your place is to arrive early and choose an early slot.

The Prizes!
As is tradition, the winning pitch on the night will take the total cash in the hat.
Additional prizes announced on the day

To pitch, book your ticket, pre-register your pitch and book your place on arrival, and drop a fiver in the hat when you are called up.
