Some Snaps from Pitch Fest FEB 2023

Pitch Fest allows you to meet and network with Australian screen professionals and provides you with the exclusive opportunity to pitch them your project or idea.

Over two days, you will be allocated five 15-minute sessions to pitch your project to five different Market Representatives. In addition to the pitches, there will also be a series of presentations and panels to give you a deeper insight into the screen industry.

A Market Handbook will be provided to you in the lead-up, giving you the opportunity to study each attending Market Representative in order to request time with individuals or production companies that best align with your project. Take a look below to see who we’ve had in the Pitch Fest Market in previous years.
