Screen Training Ireland, in association with Galway Film Centre, are seeking participants for a one day workshop to explore effective and persuasive ways to present and pitch film projects. Exploring techniques that help us convey the essentials, we can learn to deliver a pitch that is effective, clear, memorable and most likely to generate interest.

  • What kind of language can we use?
  • What are the most important elements to a strong pitch?
  • How long should it be?
  • How can we do justice to our projects in X minutes?
  • Techniques to engage our listeners
  • Performance nerves
  • How does pitching get to be fun? (it needs to be).
