Second year DFP student Diane Hodson will test her pitching talents against documentary film students around the state in the 3rd Annual RiverRun PitchFest competition. Hodson will pitch her thesis film unmappable, co-directed by Jasmine Luoma, in the hopes of capturing another pitch competition win. Hodson took first place honors at the New Orleans Pitch Perfect Competition in October.
The PitchFest competition will feature film students from the DFP, Duke, Elon, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, The University of North Carolina School of the Arts and University of North Carolina at Wilmington. The students will pitch their documentary shorts projects to a panel of industry experts, who will provide feedback and select a first and second place winner.
