Here’s what some of our participants and Industry Decision Makers have to say:

 

By the end of the day I had a green light for my project. I have successfully completed my documentary which has subsequently been nominated for an Ampia Award.

- Smita Acharrya, Writer /Director

 

Amazingly orchestrated!  From the panels to the Pitching's ski-lift line precision - I loved it!!!  I was able to pitch to so many companies AND quite a few of them requested my scripts!  A+++++++ on your efforts!

- Rebecca Smith, Screenwriter

 

I pitched a comedy game show to National Lampoon, and after a couple conversations, I now have a deal memo from them and we are moving ahead

to develop the show. - Magie Matulic, Toronto

 

"I signed three writers, and am still thinking about others. I have placed all three projects with industry executives who can help make their careers."

- Max Freedman, Agent

 

"We optioned a project from someone and have now developed it into a co-production."  -- Angela Lee, Letnom Productions, (Montel Williams Company)

"I have never seen a pitchfest with fewer problems, and I did not hear of one complaint. This was a well organized and well run operation." -- William Milano, Writer


I have been to countless similar pitch sessions and none of them come close to comparing to the overall quality and efficiency of your event. I found this to be the feeling of every single person I spoke too while I was in line waiting for my next chance to pitch. I felt like you were there for the writers and not just there to make a quick pile of cash. In fact, the money I paid was nothing in comparison to what I took away from the event. I cannot wait for the next pitchfest you will be hosting. Your pitchfest will always be on the top of my list "must be there" events. – Neo Edmund

 

I had 11 meetings in four hours, twice what I've experienced at any other pitchfest I've attended.  Best organized pitchfest I've ever attended and I heard the same comment from a number of writers who'd been to quite a few. – Fred Keating

 

I have been to three pitch fests including yours and yours rates far above in terms of organization, preparation and being relaxed and hassle free. – Paul Martin

 

It was fantastic. I got in 13 pitches and have sent out seven scripts.  It was unbelievably well organized and professionally done. - Michael Vajgert

 

Congrats on putting on the most well organized and enjoyable pitch festival I've ever attended. – Curtis Dale, Screenwriter

 

It's an amazing PitchFest and the best I've ever attended! – Nisso Cohen

 

Thanks so much for one heck of a day!  I met lots of terrific people and truly, was just blown away by the turnout and the incredible organization.  Unbelievable, so congratulations and thanks to you.   Count on me for anything in the future. – Tim Crescenti, Fox (VP, International Production)

 

"This pitchfest was by far the best organized, and most beneficial pitch fest I've ever seen. The ratio of companies to participants was very high, the process of pitching was simple and smooth, and lots of participants got their material requested. I strongly recommend this event for anyone with a project ready to market."  -- Michael Hauge, Author of the best seller, "Writing Screenplays That Sell"

"I now have an LA agent that I met as a result of the pitchfest, and industry executives regularly requesting my material." -- Lorene Lacey, Calgary Screenwriter

"The lady from National Lampoon actually took my script on the spot."
-- Frank from Kentucky

 

 

"I am happy to report Pyramid Productions secured a deal to produce three pilot episodes of a new series on crime and forensic psychiatry called The Criminal Mind. This from a pitch that began at the PitchFest" -- Larry Day, Pyramid Productions

 

"We were really impressed and appreciated how very organized and clear your event was.  We do many of these and yours was quite refreshing.  We’ve signed a couple writers from your event, and have hired them for writing assignments." -- Jenz Bergren, Ken Gross Management
