What is a Film Pitch Deck?

A film pitch deck is a visual presentation of slides that shows investors how your film or TV Show looks and feels in pictures. It should include a summary, list of key producers and cast, locations and a description of your intended audience.

It is the introduction to film executives to take interest in your project before sending the detailed film business plan.

Goal of a Film Pitch Deck

A Film Pitch Deck helps executives visualize your short film, feature film, or TV series.

  • Start a conversation with an investor or distributor as an introduction to your project.
  • Present your project, one idea per slide in strong visuals to show the mood and theme.
  • Summarize your film business plan in 4 - 8 slides.

The aim is to get your foot in the door before you send a 20-page detailed film business plan to close the deal.
