Del Col and Mavi Win Telefilm Canada Pitch This Competition

Anthony Del Col and Jagdeep Mavi won the Telefilm Canada Pitch This! competition for their project "Outsourced" Tuesday at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film  is a feature comedy about a twenty-something computer programmer/slacker who devises the ultimate get-out-of-work scheme: he outsources his own job to India - without telling his boss or co-workers. Del Col and Mavi receive a $10,000 CAD prize to assist with costs related to the development of the project. Applicants were short-listed down to six finalists, who were assigned pitch coaches to help them prepare for the competition. The competition is part of the festival's Industry Initiatives.
