Paris 70′, ‘La Nau’, ‘Historias Encontradas’, ‘Ellas’ and ‘9 Pasos’ – nominated for a Goya in 2019 – are the titles that will be screened on this first day. A second day will be added on 16 October.

Fiction Mallorca Pitch 2023: towards the professionalisation of the audiovisual industry

Fiction Mallorca Pitch is the first event in the Balearic film and audiovisual industry to organise screenings of short films certified and qualified by the Instituto de la Cinematografía y de las Artes Audiovisuales (ICAA) or counterpart institutions such as the Institut Català de les Empreses Culturals (ICEC). In addition, the organisers will pay an exhibition fee for each of the works screened.

A new feature of this third edition will be a reverse box office test on the two days of short film screenings, although these are free and open to the public.

Fiction Mallorca Pitch 2023 is an event sponsored by the Calvià Town Council, the Consell de Mallorca and the Mallorca Turisme-Mallorca Film Commission Foundation. Between the 2021 and 2022 editions, it has managed to promote more than 22 projects and bring together more than 200 attendees.

The third edition of the Fiction Mallorca Pitch will continue its programme at the Sa Societat Theatre in Calvià and the Vibra Beverly Playa Hotel on the 16th, 17th and 18th of October 2023.
