NEW FOR 2020: Dreampitch
Directors are at the heart of what the YDA is about, but many of those directors would be lost without the scripts from which they work. This year we want to open the floor to these young creatives and scriptwriters with the introduction of our new category, Dreampitch.
At the centre of every good film is a great idea that has come ahead of anything else, and a truly great idea doesn’t need an essay to explain it.
In 2020 we’re looking for great ideas that can be pitched in a maximum of 100 words; words which will inspire our international jury of industry experts and creatives, and could go on to attract the attention of an agency/brand/streaming platform/producer and, of course, a director.
You can enter Dreampitch ideas for the following sub categories:
* Changing the World Frame by Frame
* Branded Film (of any length)
* Short Film
* Series
