Industry Meetings – Workshops – Pitching

In 2016 SEEfest launched Project Accelerator, for film projects currently in advanced stages of development. Accelerator is structured as an industry platform connecting South East European talent and Hollywood industry professionals. Submissions are accepted through FilmFreeway.

The track record of the submitter will be taken into account and the likelihood that a project can get made will play a substantial role in the selection process. Priority is given to projects with existing partial funding and international distribution potential. However, as is the tradition of SEEfest, compelling, innovative projects by up and coming filmmakers will also be considered.

The jury of Hollywood industry professionals will choose the winners and present Impact Awards.

The festival is charging a symbolic flat processing fee of $20 to offset some of the costs associated with the selection process.

Project submission deadline is March 26, 2017 at midnight Pacific Standard Time.
