Our Speakers and Panelists are an accomplished group that will bring you wisdom and inspiration to move your projects forward.
We find ourselves in an unprecedented crisis. So many people in our content-driven business are feeling the stress and uncertainty about the future. With nearly all production coming to a halt, theaters closing and agencies shutting down, creatives have little hope their projects can move forward during this time. We feel it is important. more now than ever, to bring inspiration through the Story to Screen Conference. We believe it is time to “pivot”.
“…a "pivot," the moment when you realize that you have to let go of what you'd planned for something much greater.” Thomas Koulopoulos, Founder, Delphi Group
We have decided to take the Story to Screen event ONLINE April 20th with our Pitchfest to be held on April 21st. The program will not replace our in-person event in Georgia (to be determined at a later date), rather it will be a more targeted approach with our speakers and panels offering specific information and resources to assist you in not only weathering the storm, but see your projects thrive during this time.
This VIRTUAL event is for writers, producers, and content creators seeking to expand their knowledge of story design, development, the book to film process, interactive media, animation, and more. We will conduct the event with a Zoom-type webinar with plenty of time for interaction and Q&A from you.
While the live event is FREE, you still must register to reserve your space in the Zoom Webinar. There is a limited number of attendees we can accommodate, so don't wait to secure your spot.
*All times are PACIFIC Time. Speakers and Schedule Subject to Change

There are 2 categories for pitched projects: Unfinished concepts, screenplays or books or Finished projects, shorts, features and other content.
The pitched projects will be evaluated on the strength of the concept, salability and craft. The winner in each category will be awarded a cash prize and post-conference phone consultation with the Pitchfest facilitator(s) to provide feedback on a potential path for their project.
Test your ideas and get feedback from the Pitchfest panel that listen to pitches every day. Each pitch will receive a grading score by our Story to Screen Judges similar to the typical grading stucture for screenplay coverage: Pass, Consider, or Recommend.
Judges for each category will be Story to Screen speakers and panelists as well as production companies, an independent studio and distributor.
A few days prior to your pitch, you will be able to upload your materials relevant to your project. Once you register to pitch, a link will be provided to you. You will have 5 minutes to pitch online. You will be scheduled a specific timeslot to pitch.
The cost to pitch your project is $29.
