ScriptFest is the biggest writer and pitching festival in the world. Every year, our lineup of speakers and guest panelists gets bigger and better. ScriptFest and The Great American PitchFest are how we are helping writers and industry leaders to connect and share updates and information. More companies than ever will hear pitches at the 2017 Great American PitchFest. And once again, there will be pitching on Saturday AND Sunday during the 2017 event. This year, we're offering a contest to not only provide prizes worth over $10,000 -- including platinum passes, free air travel, and hotel accommodations for the event -- but also as a way to highlight amazing writers for the producers who you will be pitching.

ScriptFest, the ScriptFest Master Series, and the Great American PitchFest were started as a way to help other writers move their careers forward, and make ‘finding the door’ just a little bit easier. Writers who attend our event have been hired for writing assignments, signed with agents or managers, and had their screenplays optioned. This is a business about relationships, and thousands of writers started those relationships and their careers at our events.

We are proud to be the biggest and best event of our kind, providing education services, namely, providing classes in the field of screenwriting and independent filmmaking, and helping to connect writers with producers, agents, managers and production companies who can help to get their projects produced.
