South West Documentary Commission: Live Pitch


Exeter Phoenix’s 17th annual Two Short Nights Film Festival is back with a diverse and exciting programme of screenings, workshops and events celebrating the world of short film. Enjoy incredible documentaries, stunning cinematography and exceptional storytelling with screenings of must-see films from around the world, alongside emerging local talent.

South West Documentary Commission: Live Pitch

Responding to a set brief, watch filmmaking teams pitch for the South West Documentary Commission 2019, in front of a live panel of film commissioners from Exeter Phoenix and Real Stories. All hoping to secure the cash prize of £1000 funding and additional support towards their next non-fiction short film project.

The South West Documentary Film Commission is aimed at filmmakers looking for funding to realise a non-fiction short film project exploring any subject matter, which demonstrates originality within the documentary genre. The final film is required to be 5 minutes in length and may use any form production technique for delivery, such as live action, reenactment or animation.
