NYCsCREENWRITER 

PITCHFEST 


YOU'LL MEET

THREE

INDUSTRY FILM EXECS. 

OCTOBER 30th

YOU PITCH YOUR PROJECT 
ONE ON ONE

==========

WHAT IS PITCHFEST?

You will meet three A-list industry executives where you will pitch your script or TV show idea.

Each meeting is three minutes in length with the opportunity for you and the executive to have an exclusive one-on-one pitch/relationship building encounter.

We open the door but YOU step through.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Ever hear of speed dating? This PitchFest is a similar concept, except the ‘dates’ are with three industry executives.

Basically, you enter a room with three executives sitting at separate tables. You sit down and have a three-minute pitch session.

At the end of that time, a bell rings and you shift over to your next exec. at the next table; then repeated twice more. You exit, and the process is repeated.

WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

Getting access to qualified executives is very difficult. We open the door and you "step through" and pitch your material. Remember, it's all about relationships. This is a golden opportunity to build them!
