Launched in January 2018, Film Pipeline spotlights both a short script and short film competition intended to find extraordinary directors as well as distinguished projects that merit financing and production. Contest selections are circulated to agencies, producers, and managers looking for emerging directors, proof-of-concept or standalone shorts, and filmmakers across a broad spectrum of backgrounds. Unlike a typical festival, Film Pipeline promotes individual directors and plays an active role in getting content produced and distributed.

Film Pipeline joins Script Pipeline (est. 1999) and Book Pipeline (est. 2014) as part of Pipeline Media Group’s suite of platforms connecting creatives with the film and TV industry. Through Script Pipeline, numerous writer/directors have produced their work, sold over $6 million in screenplays and pilots to studios, and found representation due to the guidance of PMG’s development staff–a team fully committed to replicating the success of Script Pipeline with Film Pipeline.

Online, she creates videos to express herself, giving advice on topics she is woefully unqualified to talk about, such as: being yourself, having confidence, making friends. In real life, she is a quiet loner, hopelessly awkward, and desperate to fit in. Kayla goes through all of the…
