The in-person program, proudly presented in partnership with the Writers Guild of America East, will take place June 5-7, 2019 in New York City and culminates in a pitch day for invited guests, including investors, financial institutions, sales agents, production and distribution companies, great filmmakers, driven producers, and notable members of the independent film community.

OVERVIEW

The in-person program will take place June 5-7, 2019 in New York City and culminates in a pitch day for invited guests.

WHO ATTENDS: investors, financial institutions, sales agents, production and distribution companies, great filmmakers, driven producers, and notable members of the independent film community.

WHO PITCHES: diverse, outstanding filmmakers. From filmmakers who are working on their first feature to those who have made several big Hollywood films. What they have in common: they are telling bold stories from unique POVs and represent the next generation of independent film stars.

INCLUSION REQUIREMENTS:

Since 2015, we’ve required every project that we work on to have an inclusive team. Representation behind the camera and on screen matters to us too, as we’re sure it does to you! Films in our program are lead by women, people of color, LGBTQ, differently abled, and/or military veterans in a key role on the above the line team. The demographics of the characters in the film also must represent the world in which the film takes place.
