Online PitchFest XXI- Financiers/First Look Studio Deals

There are hundreds of production companies in Los Angeles and New York, but a much smaller number actually has the ability to finance films or directly get projects to a studio. These companies are obviously in much more demand because they ARE the decision makers. High level agents and managers are always trying to get their clients' projects to these places...and we have them!

We are thrilled to bring you our next Online PitchFest XXI- Financiers/Studio Deals. On tap we have Scott Free Productions, Mandeville Films, Maven Pictures, RatPac Entertainment, Atlas Entertainment, Cider Mill Productions and Vice! These companies all have the ability to finance and/or have first look deals with major studios (like Disney and AMC). 

Though getting your project set up at any respected company is a step in the right direction...getting your project set up at a company that has financing ability is invaluable. 

We love being able to connect you into the heart of Hollywood and it's your success stories that keep us going every day. Please be sure to check out some of our recent successes from our online pitch fests below, and in our success stories section. Also, read what our executives and writers are saying about these groundbreaking Stage 32 Happy Writer Online Pitchfests here!
