Ready, Set, Pitch!

90 min


CAAM is venturing into the wild world of funding with our Ready, Set, Pitch! live presentation at festival. We will select three to five media producers with projects in development to present their pitch to a jury of media professionals and a live festival audience. Pitch presenters are encouraged to display a lively and creative pitch that invites participation from the audience.

The winning pitch, selected by the jury with audience feedback, will receive a $5,000 CAAM challenge grant for research and development.

All kinds of media projects—documentary, narrative and multimedia—are welcome. Each media project selected is also required to have a crowd-sourcing strategy, incorporating either a Kickstarter or Indiegogo campaign. CAAM will collaborate with the media producers to promote all the projects and their crowd-funding campaigns, in order to help reach potential funders and raise further awareness.

This program is made possible with support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).

This is a FREE EVENT but space is limited! Be sure to RSVP:

Contestants: Suha Araj, Kimberlee Bassford, Leo S. Chiang, Lisa Katayama, Ellie Lee

Moderator: Wendy Levy (moderator)
