Pitch Competition (2020) – ROUND 2 Partnership Submission

Hello writers! Congratulations: your script has been selected by our partners at The Black List or Sundance Institute’s Episodic Program to advance to Round 2 of the 2020 ATX Television Festival’s The Pitch Competition!

In order for your pitch to be considered for further advancement, we will need:

1) A short video pitching your series in 90 seconds or less. Pitch videos can be as simple (you and an iPhone) or complex (graphics, characters, etc) as you would like — as long as it pitches the series featured in your selected script and does not exceed 90 seconds.

2) A five to ten (5-10) page script sample from your selected pilot script. If you’ve updated your draft since originally submitting, this is a chance to send in a sample of your most current version! All script samples must be in PDF format. Title pages do NOT count towards your ten (10) pages.

All pitch videos and script samples must be submitted by 11:59 PM (PT) on February 13, 2020.

Once your pitch is ready, please upload it to YouTube as an unlisted video and submit using the form below. Please make sure to also include the names of any co-writers/pitchers.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our team at TV@atxfestival.com — and best of luck in the next round!
