Thank You To Our Sponsors

I’ve attended other pitch events, and by far the pitches here were better than any other. The classes you offered were great, and I believe helped the writers a lot — the ones that stood out were Pilar’s Pitch class, and the interviews with Mark Fergus and J. C. Spink.

Judd Taylor, Michael Black Management

This was the best pitch event I’ve attended. Very well organized, very friendly, and very respectful of our needs and our place in the business.

Chris Armogida, Rogue Pictures/Focus Features

The group of people (decision-makers, pitchers, organizers and volunteers) created such a positive energy and contributed to the success of the event. I look forward to the next one, please keep in touch.

Erin Fredman, Imagine Entertainment

I have had follow up meetings with 12 writers who pitched me at the pitchfest and have forwarded 3 to my colleague for further development. We are matching them with producers we work with.”

Janice Talbott, CHUM-TV

GAPF is the absolutely best PitchFest ever and I highly recommend it to my friends, colleagues, clients, and on my social networks.

Pamela Jaye Smith, Writer/Instructor

We have signed two writers we met at your pitchfest.

Anne-Marie Lamonde, The Howard Hill Agency

Always a first class operation. Well run and organized.

Alan Kaplan, Cine LA

I signed a development deal with a manager I met at your PitchFest, and we are talking to name actors and production companies. Thank you for creating this excellent event!
