Attention Filmmakers: Pitch Your Project or Story to Distributors at Proclaim 18!
Do you have a story, script, or even a finished product? Want to pitch it straight to a distribution company or just get notes and input from a highly-successful film professional?
If you are registered for the Full Convention or registered for a Day Pass for Proclaim 18, you can pitch to four different distributors at the NRB 2018 Pitch-a-thon!
Choose from at least 14 top distributors this year!
During the Pitch-a-thon, representatives of participating distribution companies will be seated around tables. Everyone who signs up for the Pitch-a-thon will have five minutes at each distributor’s table – up to three minutes to pitch your project, and two for their notes. No more than two people can represent a project to a distributor and only one project is allowed per five-minute session.
The still-growing list* of those on the receiving end of the Pitch-a-thon currently includes:
- SONY AFFIRM FILMS (Rich Peluso)
- TBN / JUCE-TV (Mark McCallie)
- SONY PROVIDENT (Ben Howard)
- PURE FLIX ENTERTAINMENT (Rick Bonn)
- CINEDIGM (Glenn Atamaniuk)
- MISSION PICTURES (Cindy Bond)
- BMG / BRIDGESTONE (David Austin)
- PARABLES TV (Isaac Hernandez)
- PURE FLIX DIGITAL (Jim Schubert / Patrick McDonough)
- VISION VIDEO / GATEWAY FILMS (Bill Curtis / Karen Rutt / Matt Oser)
- OCEAN AVENUE ENTERTAINMENT (Chris Bueno / Denise Bueno / Bob Elder)
- CROWN ENTERTAINMENT (Brad Mix)
- VIRGIL FILMS & ENTERTAINMENT (Craig Van Gorp / Joseph Amodei)
- COBALT PICTURES (Travis Mann)
In the four years since NRB began hosting the Pitch-a-thon, some pitches have landed deals and a number of participants have received offers for distribution for their films.
The Pitch-a-thon will take place Wednesday, February 28, from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville – site of Proclaim 18, the upcoming NRB International Christian Media Convention.
All participants must arrive by 6:00 p.m. and take part in the free “How to Pitch” seminar taught by Hollywood veteran Catherine Clinch.
Registration is required to participate in the Pitch-a-thon. Anyone late for a pitch session will immediately forfeit that slot, which may be awarded to someone else. It is recommended that prospective Pitch-a-thon participants register as soon as possible to ensure a spot with the distributor(s) they want most. Appointments are expected to fill up quickly.
To register for the event, visit nrbconvention.org. Registration for the Pitch-a-thon is completed within the Convention registration process. If you have already registered for the Convention and would like to add the Pitch-a-thon, simply log back on and modify your Convention registration. The Pitch-a-thon registration can be found at the bottom of the page with the additional meal tickets, reserved tables, etc.
*The representative(s) taking pitches for the company may be other than those named above.
