Schlingel pitches film treatments

IFF SCHLINGEL will celebrate its 25th anniversary as a physical event in October 2020 and introduces the concept of ‘pitching treatments’, for which submissions are open now.





Celebrating its 25th anniversary from 10-17th October in Chemnitz, Germany, this year’s IFF Schlingel has an interesting Industry Forum coming up. For the first time, the forum will present a selection of projects in a ‘treatment stage’, pitched by the authors to two juries. The best treatment, selected by a jury of industry executives, will be granted an award endowment of €5,000. IFF SCHLINGEL is proud to have ARRI MEDIA on board as a partner, allowing also the children’s jury to award one treatment with a €5,000 cash prize. Project submissions are open until 10th August 2020. You will find the application and guidelines here.


All events at IFF SCHLINGEL are planned as physical events under current security measures. We are looking forward to welcoming you at the 25th IFF SCHLINGEL edition!
