Massachusetts Works-in-Progress Pitch Session

No Ticket Required

2018 marks the 6th year that IFFBoston and C-LineFilms have partnered to present the Mass Works-in-Progress event.

The Massachusetts Documentary Works-In-Progress Pitch Session spotlights local filmmakers at various stages in their careers and at different stages of production with their projects. The IFFBoston/C-LineFilms WIP event takes place before a general audience of filmgoers, potential funders, broadcasters, festival programmers, brand partners and industry insiders. The goal of the event is to create a unique coalition of awareness and support for local filmmakers.

7 filmmakers will present a 3–5 minute clip of their project—followed by a short Q&A guided by the moderator and jurors. Each presentation will last 10–5 minutes.

Presented by C-Line Films
