Pitching Sessions – Expression of Interest

Prior to the Meet the Broadcasters event, SBS and NITV are offering a unique opportunity for filmmakers to participate in a speed pitching session with the decision makers from their Scripted and Unscripted teams.

The one-on-one pitches will take place for Unscripted (Documentary, Food and Factual Entertainment), Scripted and NITV. Create NSW will facilitate up to eight pitching slots and pitches will be 15 minutes each. The commissioning team will not have prior knowledge of the proposals, so have your best 'elevator pitch' ready to go.

The pitching sessions will run from 3:30-5:30pm at ICE.

To express interest for a pitch session, you can apply here.

Applications close Friday 3 August (midnight).
