Pitch New Works
What is Pitch New Works?
Developed from a program which originated at the Banff Film and Television Festival in Canada, Pitch New Works is a forum for creators and arts professionals to share and discover new performing arts projects at ISPA congresses. Twice a year, ISPA holds a public call for applications from which ten submissions are selected to be presented at the following ISPA congress.
The application period for Pitch New Works at the New York 2020 ISPA Congress is now closed. Thank you to all those who applied!
