CBA WorldView and Community Channel are looking for six new or emerging documentary filmmakers to pitch their ideas to an industry panel on the afternoon of Thursday 14th June for the opportunity to be granted up to £10,000 of development funding In many countries women are made to feel that commerce is literally none of their business. We will be seeking ideas for a 15 - 20-minute documentary that creatively explores positive stories about women and business in the developing world. The chosen film will challenge preconceptions about women with a surprising and engaging storyline. The successful film will be shown on the Community Channel later in the year and there will be an opportunity to discuss other distribution outlets.
Potential applicants should email linda at cba.org.uk with a maximum one page proposal for their film idea, headed by their name, and full contact details (postal address, email and phone contact). The subject heading of your email should read: "WorldView at Sheffield – Live Pitch Proposal." You should also attach a current CV. The Pitch is open to UK & International applicants.

Please submit your proposal by 5pm on Monday 30th April 2012.
