In 2014 the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) in collaboration with the Malaysian Documentary Association (MyDocs) invited Malaysian documentary filmmakers to submit proposals of their stories for development funding under the Malaysia Documentary Pitch Trailer 2014.
This program was aimed to help the chosen filmmakers further research and develop their ideas to a stage where they would eventually be able to produce a quality pitch trailer to pitch to an international panel of broadcasters. Only 18 of the best proposals were selected. Out of which, the top 3 winners will have a chance to go into full production under Creative Industry Development Fund (CIDF-MCMC) and have the opportunity to be broadcast on History Channel as well as local broadcasters.
The final pitch session, was held on April 8th and 9th will showcase how well these projects were able to further develop their stores with the funds they were given.
MyDocs members were given an exclusive opportunity to observe this pitch.
