The Lion’s Den: A Live Pitch Session (Panel)

Our annual pitch panel has garnered successful acquisitions, fundings, and package deals for 6 years. This is a pitch panel made up of accredited private investors, VC financiers, and content development professionals, called “lions,” who consider pitches from aspiring filmmakers seeking funding or option agreements for their feature/short film or streaming content. The lions are not paid for their participation on the panel. The filmmaker can make a deal live during the program if a panel member is interested. However, if all the panel members opt out, the filmmaker leaves empty-handed. Pitchers will have five minutes to pitch their project. The panel will be streaming live to thousands of viewers and a live audience at the event on Catalina Island.
