Pitch In Paradise Panel: Meet the Buyers
The broadcast landscape is changing and we have brought together a panel of highly regarded commissioners to give you insight into selecting projects for development, behind-the-scenes detail about the decision-making process, and the unique focus of their production slate.
Pitch In Paradise
Pitch in Paradise is Queensland’s new market event for narrative film and TV projects. The two-day event is a pitching and one-on-one meeting opportunity bringing together screenwriters, producers, productions companies, broadcasters, and financiers. In partnership with Queensland Writers Centre, the event also includes the book-to-screen pitching event ADAPTABLE. Pitch sessions are accessible by invite only or pre-selection, but Panel sessions are open to all.
Can’t make it in person? Pitch in Paradise panel sessions are also available to view online via the Gold Coast Film Festival’s digital platform. Book a digital Pitch In Paradise pass for $10, which gets you access to three panels across two days.
