The upcoming edition of the GAIFF Pro Industry Platform
takes place July 10-14, 2023.
The objective of Short Cuts Nest is to boost the development of the short film sector in Armenia. Its aim is to enhance the influence of short films on the wider film industry and to foster the emergence of fresh cinema authors and artists.
5 Armenian short projects will be selected to participate at GAIFF Pro 2023 and compete for a special Prize. The main criteria for selection are the artistic quality of the project, the uniqueness of the content, the relevance of the subject matter, and its potential internationally. Priority will be given to projects of emerging filmmakers.
At the end of the Industry event, the selected participants will pitch their projects during the Pitching Session to a group of experts, producers, and festival executives. Pitching sessions are held in English. Depending on the pitch set-up, the teams have 7 – 10 minutes to present their project, including visual material, if applicable. The pitch is followed by a short Q&A with the moderator.
The winning project will be announced after the Pitching session, receiving an equipment deal for up to 6 days, amounting to up to 5MM AMD, sponsored by KinoTech.
