For the first time at SXSW Film, independent content creators will have the opportunity to participate in an Episodic Pitch-A-Thon presented by SeriesFest in partnership with SXSW. The Pitch-a-Thon is an exclusive live episodic pitch session with top television, new media and digital execs in hopes of moving their projects - and careers- forward. SXSW 2020 filmmakers will be among six slots in a live event where each Creator/Creative Team will have 5 minutes to pitch in front of an audience. An industry panel of experts seated on stage will then have 7 minutes to give their feedback to each project. This event will be approximately 90 minutes.
