The Great American PitchFest is a two-day screenwriting conference, one-day tradeshow, and one-day pitchfest which takes place at the Burbank Marriott Hotel & Convention Center, June 20-22, 2008. It was started by a group of writers to help other writers meet the people they need to know for their careers to move forward. More than 30 free classes on screenwriting will be presented by legends such as Syd Field, Blake Snyder, Viki King, Pilar Alessandra, Michael Hauge, Julie Gray, and dozens of other excellent speakers. You can also pitch your screenplay to approximately 100 film/television executives and agents.
Some of the special guests leading these FREE classes include A-list screenwriter and Academy Award Nominee, Mark Fergus (Iron Man, Children of Men) and Producer JC Spink of BenderSpink (American Pie, History of Violence, Red Eye, The Ring).
More than 50 writers have had their projects optioned, been hired for writing assignments, or have signed with agents or managers. Visit www.pitchfest.com for more details.
