Pitch It!

Omni Culture TV Fest 2022

Pitch Event Overview


For the first time ever, the Omni Cultural TV Fest is featuring Pitch It! – a live, virtual platform in S.T.R.E.A.M. World on February 24, 2022, where participants get to pitch their hearts out in guaranteed pitch meetings with industry representatives from participating TV networks, studios, production companies, and streaming services.

Pitch It! is the IDEAL place for connecting TV networks, studios, production companies, and streaming services with you and your projects. Whether jumpstarting a career or taking one to next level in the entertainment industry, access is EVERYTHING.

A successful pitch starts with preparation. The Omni Cultural TV Fest will provide mandates ahead of time so that participants will know what the companies are looking for regarding genre, format, and target demos. We will also offer Pitch Etiquette (how to pitch) so that you know the do’s and don’ts needed to put your best pitch forward.

 

If the thought of pitching gives you butterflies, then Pitch It! is for you. This event takes place inside the virtual S.T.R.E.A.M. World campus. Simply register, download the platform, create your avatar, tap directional arrow keys to navigate, and use the built-in mic to communicate. Only your avatars will be virtual face-to-virtual faces. 

 

The Pitch It! package includes:  One (1) ticket to the virtual Omni Cultural TV Fest 2022 and two (2) guaranteed pitches selected from your top 5 choices from participating TV networks, studios, production companies, and streaming services.
