Miami Pitch Fest will take place on Friday, April 28th at 8pm at ELEVEN ROOFTOP in Miami. The purpose of the event is for independent filmmaker to pitch their projects to network executives in the hopes of distribution, development, or direct feedback regarding their project’s marketability. Pitches may be for Web Series or Films. The best pitch will be awarded $500 during the 4th annual Miami Web Fest Awards, taking place later that same day. The contest is set up similar to “Shark Tank”. Competitors may play a video (up to 1 minute) on the screen behind them, Then will have 3 additional minutes to describe their project and why it is a good investment for a private investor, distribution company or network. (Those without a video will have 4 minutes total) After the presentation, several network executives will provide immediate feedback about the respective projects. Current panel includes the following judges: Roberto Hernandez (HBO) Rainer Lorenzo (Viacom) Maria Eugenia Contreras (HBO) Whitney Marshall (TV One) For filmmakers, even if you are not actually pitching, this is the "right room" to be in!
