The Keys to a Power Punching Pitch (Latino Media Market - (Restricted Access. By Invitation Only)

Creators Studio 2

Talking to a dealmaker can be frightening. Writers and directors are often times at a loss of words on how to express their projects. They lack the tools necessary to take their project to the next level.

In this intimate setting, content creators will build the confidence to know what to say and how to give that knockout pitch. Industry professionals from different expertise will guide Latino Media Market fellows to focus on the way to standing out from just another pitch.

The Latino Media Market is the only executive meeting series that matches Latino/a narrative, documentary, web series, and television/streaming projects with funders, studio executives, distributors, agents, broadcasters, and mentors. Typically, a participating Media Market executive selects projects appropriate to their business agenda, and is scheduled for four to eight 30-minute meetings on Friday, June 23 and Saturday, June 24 at the Ray Dolby Ballroom in Hollywood, CA.

Speakers: Amy Halpin (Director of Filmmaker Services, The International Documentary Association (IDA)), Jessica Pavao (Director of Development, 3Pas Studios, Brittany Machado (Independent Filmmaker), Toni Bell (Filmmaker Services Manager, IDA)


Moderator: Adriana Martinez Barron
