Who Will Win The Inaugural 1 Million Dollar Cinecoup Film Accelerator Pitch At Banff?

cinecoupNinety filmmaking teams from across Canada applied to CineCoup with a two-minute trailer as part of the CineCoup Film Accelerator: a disruptive new model for indie filmmakers to develop, market and finance their feature films. Over the course of 15 weeks, they have advanced through a competitive selection funnel by completing tough weekly missions that are designed to package their projects and build audience support on the CineCoup social web platform. The Top 10 projects were optioned for development. 

In partnership with Cineplex Entertainment and Telefilm Canada, the Final 5 teams will be put on the hot seat at the Banff World Media Festival when they pitch their projects to an esteemed panel of industry heavyweights on June 10th at 4:30pm. The event will be webcast on LiveStream and ends with the thrilling reveal of CineCoup’s Top Project, selected for financing and Cineplex release.

CineCoup will select one Superfan from its Superfan Leaderboard to attend the Final 5 event as a panelist and represent indie film fans by asking questions from CineCoup’s live streaming Twitter feed.

Pitch Event Host: Arisa Cox from Big Brother Canada
