Event Details

Australian Writers' Guild NSW Committee and VIVID Sydney present – Breakfast Speed Pitch Fest ‘17

Have a great idea for a film, TV show, web-series or theatre production? Feel like your concept has legs but don’t have a clue how to get it out there? Then this is the event for you! 

Come and pitch your project to some of Australia’s leading producers and broadcasters and receive instant feedback.

You will have exactly four minutes to pitch your concept to a producer, broadcaster or content maker who will then provide detailed feedback on the idea, discussing how it stacks up in the current media climate. A bell will then ring and you will move on to the next producer and start all over again. By the end of the session, you will have pitched your idea to a buzzing room full of industry professionals, all while having created invaluable networks and receiving the wisdom which will allow you to take your project to the next level.

Access and Inclusion

  • Wheelchair accessible - Access to the venue is suitable for wheelchairs (toilets, ramps/lifts etc.) and designated wheelchair spaces are available.
  • Hearing loop - A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids.

Check if your venue has this system.
