11th Annual Native American Writers Pitch Fest and Original Content Panel

November 16

Native American Virtual Pitch Fest is an online speed pitching workshop for fellows of our year long writers programs. This event is a culmination of our 8-week TV Writers Lab and 10-week Feature Film Writers Lab. This year, the pitch fest is virtual and divided into numerous segments to address the growing demand for Native American writers. This year’s pitch fest and panel are presented by Spectrum.

The pitch fest will have Native American TV and Feature Film writers pitch their scripts, projects and themselves to several network and studio development executives, as well as managers, and agents. This year’s pitch fest includes Bad Robot, Amazon, Paramount, Echolake, Gersh and many other partners. This portion of the event is by invitation only.

We conclude with the Original Content Panel. This event is virtual and available to the public. This panel is a discussion with creative executives from Amazon and Spectrum with a focus on following up on pitch meetings for scripted and unscripted content creators. This panel is open to the public. RSVP Available Here!
