The Listening Pitch

Introducing “The Listening Pitch” documentary film grant, a collaboration between Aesthetica and Audible, offering £20,000 (R479,333.20) to fund compelling narratives centred on the theme of listening. Since 2021, six films have been funded, including acclaimed works like “Banana” and “Old Lesbians.” This year’s challenge seeks to uncover extraordinary stories reflecting the cacophony of our world, emphasising unheard voices and human connection. The winning film will premiere at the Aesthetica Film Festival in November 2024. Filmmakers from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply, challenging conventions and redefining the art of storytelling.
Deadline: 21 April 2024.
