Branded content pitch opportunity

In an era of diminishing advertising returns, brands are increasingly turning to original storytelling to connect with audiences. But how can creatives navigate this space and what kind of projects are brands looking for?

The first ever [Future of Film] Brand/Create Pitch is a unique opportunity to pitch your story idea (across any medium) to a panel of leading brand-funding experts who will provide live feedback at the [Future of Film] Summit.

As well as the opportunity to hone your project with immediate feedback from expert judges, the winning pitch, which will be decided on the day, will have the unique opportunity to take their project to the next level through exclusive 1-2-1 development and brand-funding mentoring with Ad Age’s Production Company of the Year, UNIT9.

The theme of this year’s Pitch is Sustainability and projects with a budget between £40k – £50k which speak directly or indirectly on this theme are invited to apply.

Read the full brief and submit a project here.
The deadline is midnight on Sunday 17th November.

All Shortlisted Applicants will receive a complimentary Delegate Ticket to attend [Future of Film] Summit (worth £179).
