Dans le cadre du festival Are You Series?, l’ASA (Association des Scénaristes), Scenaristengilde, Mediarte, UPFF, VOFTP et screen.brussels proposent une session de Pitch sous la forme d’un PechaKucha. Les projets sélectionnés auront l’opportunité d’être présentés à un panel de diffuseurs et de distributeurs lors du festival.

Bien que l’usage de l’Anglais soit recommandé pour ces sessions, les pitchs peuvent se faire en Français. L’ASA pourra (si les auteurs le souhaitent) faire traduire les documents qui accompagneront la présentation.
