Presented by SeriesFest in partnership with SXSW, the SXSW Film Festival Episodic Pitch-A-Thon gives independent content creators the opportunity to pitch their projects to top television, new media and digital execs in hopes of moving their projects - and careers - forward. SXSW 2020 filmmakers are among the six creative teams in this virtual pitching event. Each creator/creative team will have 5 minutes to pitch to the industry panel of experts in front of a live virtual audience (that's you!). The panel will then have 7 minutes to give their feedback to each project. Only one winner will be announced!

WHEN: Tuesday, April 28 | 8pm EST
