RoleCall Presents: Film Pitch ATL @ General Assembly

Engage with some of the southeast’s most talented independent filmmakers. Listen as they tell you about their most current production and how they plan to take it from script to screen. Learn from them as they explain their concept, how they find cast and crew, their financing strategy, and their marketing and business plan… aka how do they plan to distribute their film and actually make money!

After each pitch, the director/producer of the project will open the floor to questions for a 5 minute Q&A with the audience… ask them anything!

Each project that pitches already has a finished script and is deep into pre-production, with the ability to begin principal photography within 6 months. Their presentation at Film Pitch ATL is to help them gain more exposure for their project, close a funding round, fill final cast and crew positions, and potentially begin distribution conversations.

Join us in the audience if you’re an investor, a potential investor, actor, above and below the line crew, film business professionals, film enthusiast, or just curious to learn more about the ATL film scene.

RoleCall Presents: Film Pitch ATL @ General Assembly

Engage with some of the southeast’s most talented independent filmmakers. Listen as they tell you about their most current production and how they plan to take it from script to screen. Learn from them as they explain their concept, how they find cast and crew, their financing strategy, and their marketing and business plan… aka how do they plan to distribute their film and actually make money!

After each pitch, the director/producer of the project will open the floor to questions for a 5 minute Q&A with the audience… ask them anything!

Each project that pitches already has a finished script and is deep into pre-production, with the ability to begin principal photography within 6 months. Their presentation at Film Pitch ATL is to help them gain more exposure for their project, close a funding round, fill final cast and crew positions, and potentially begin distribution conversations.

Join us in the audience if you’re an investor, a potential investor, actor, above and below the line crew, film business professionals, film enthusiast, or just curious to learn more about the ATL film scene.
