AFF Presents: Pitch Day!

Join Austin Film Festival for a day of pitching fun! Fine tune your pitch before you take on the big leagues at AFF 2018 with Pitch Day on Sunday, July 22nd. This workshop is great to practice an elevator-style pitch and can help writers to conquer their fears of public speaking and selling themselves.

Start your day off with an intimate Pitch Workshop with industry script consultant Jill Chamberlain, founder of The Screenplay Workshop. She’ll give feedback and workshop a few pitches to make sure they’re ready to go!

Next, enjoy a generous break – plenty of time to practice your pitch with other workshop attendees and grab a drink or two before… The Pitch Party! Invite your friends because there is also going to be an audience award-winner for the contest! Guests can arrive at 2:30 pm for drinks and mingling. The Pitch Party is Free with RSVP!

In the final event of the day, you’ll have 90 seconds to pitch to a live audience and a panel of judges. One winner will be crowned Pitcher Extraordinaire and win a Lone Star Badge and Pitch Ticket for the 2018 Austin Film Festival for a chance to do it all again!

Confirmed Judges include:

Elizabeth Avellán – Co-Owner and Vice President of Troublemaker Studios and President of EYA Productions. In addition to producing family and genre films that have collectively grossed over a billion dollars, she has played a primary role in developing Austin, Texas as a thriving film community.

Cathleen Sutherland – Oscar® nominated and award-winning producer of Boyhood. She has been involved in independent filmmaking in Texas since she was a youth and is proud to still call Austin home.
