Telefilm Canada PITCH THIS!

Telefilm Canada PITCH THIS! returned to the Toronto International Film Festival for its fourteenth consecutive year. Six teams had six minutes to pitch their feature film idea to an audience of over 300 industry professionals at the Glenn Gould Studio!

Congratulations to Dan Bekerman and Daniel Cockburn who have been awarded the $15,000 Telefilm Canada PITCH THIS! Award for their project The Engineers.

The Engineers follows a crime novelist who, desperate to understand his characters inside and out, hires actors to go to therapy "in character" and report their insights and epiphanies to him... But his experiment soon turns into a Frankenstein creation with a life of its own.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email us.
