In 2019, the festival launched an exciting initiative; a pitch competition called Pitch, Pleez! This prize offered Australian LGBTIQ+ filmmakers the opportunity to create original content by assisting the production of a short fiction, documentary or web series pilot. The winning pitch addressed MQFF’s central values of celebrating and showcasing proudly different queer stories in an Australian context.
Applications for Pitch, Pleez! 2021 are open and successful finalists will be notified in early March. The selected individual or team will then be required to participate in an open session pitch-off event to be held in front of a jury of industry experts and a live audience during MQFF Together.
