The 2nd Annual New York PitchXchange

scr(i)pt magazine Presents:
The 2nd Annual New York PitchXchange

Last year, over 30 executives (agents, managers, producers) attended the Inaugural New York PitchXchange to hear five-minute pitches from over 500 aspiring and working screenwriters. Companies included Miramax Films, Dimension Films, MTV, Abrams Artist Agency, The Howard Stern Production Company and many others.

This year’s the event will topple last year’s. The first day offers a full-day seminar with Hollywood producer and “Pitch King” Robert Kosberg. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from the master and participate in a Q&A session. The day wraps with Pitch Idol-- American Idol with a pitch.

On the second day, pitches will rain from the sky as writers pitch their best ideas, five minutes at a time. In between pitches writers will have the chance to attend one-hour classes on subjects ranging from “How to Writer a Query Letter” to “Writing a Great Opening.” Throughout the entire weekend, one-on-one pitch coaching will also be available in 15-minute sessions. Finally, writers and executives will party like rock-stars and have the chance to meet and mingle at out VIP Networking Party.

This year, we aim to create a sequel that surpasses the original. Our readers have responded and the turnout spoke for itself; East Coast writers must have a way to access Hollywood without traveling 3,000 miles! And, there is no better location than that of the East Coast’s finest film program--New York University.

This year’s event will take place over the weekend of June 10-11, 2005 and is sponsored by IFP, WGAe, Screenstyle, Drama Book Store, Cinewomen New York and Final Draft.
