The Spy Hop PitchNic program was conceived in 2001 as an innovative way of uniting talented and passionate young filmmakers with real production resources. An intense year-long workshop, PitchNic allows experienced student filmmakers access to the funds, equipment, and professional mentorship needed to create top-caliber films. Twelve young people are chosen to participate each year, creating two documentaries and two narratives in smaller groups. All the films are screened together at private and public premieres following production wrap.
