The 2nd Annual Film Pipeline Shorts Competition seeks remarkable directors and diverse, engaging content--the type of work defined by forward-thinking perspectives and unconventional yet universally appealing stories. For those who have undertaken the colossal task of producing their material, Film Pipeline has created a platform significantly different from the typical festival: selected entrants are given introductions to managers and agents for potential representation, one-on-one collaboration with Film Pipeline to develop or produce other scripts, and extended promotion of their short film or series pilot. After two decades of discovering new projects through screenwriting, TV writing, and pitch competitions, Pipeline Media Group PMG brings a dynamic, hands-on process of industry facilitation to Film Pipeline. This allows both emerging and seasoned filmmakers a shot at financing and producing their work, as well as spotlighting their talents to garner interest from execs capable of advancing careers.
