The upcoming Wild Talk Africa Wildlife Film Festival and Conference is searching for natural history documentary and formats pitches for its pitching sessions.

The festival, running from July 23 to 26 in Durban, South Africa, has 12 project slots to fill for its pitching sessions. Submissions are now being accepted until June 6, and the filmmakers behind the top proposals will have the opportunity to pitch to a panel of commissioning editors.

Last year’s participants included commissioning editors from Animal Planet, NHK, the BBC’s NHU, National Geographic, Smithsonian Networks and NHU Africa.

Interested filmmakers should send a one-page project summary, photograph from the production, bio, and name and contact details for the person pitching, to lailah@wildtalkafrica.com. A short (five minutes  maximum) sample reel can also help, the organization said.
