“It’s an amazing opportunity. Applicants will have 5 minutes on stage; 2 minutes pitching their idea and 3 minutes of questions and answers immediately after with commissioning editors. If TG4 considers that the pitches are of an acceptable standard one pitch will be selected and we will announce the winner on Sunday September the 7th at the closing ceremony.” – Festival Chairman Eamon Ó Cualáin.
The pitching session will take place at 1pm on Saturday September the 6th at the Station House Theatre, Clifden, Co Galway. The selected pitch has a number of conditions attached e.g. the winner will need to select a television production company with a track record to contract with TG4.
