Registration for the 2018 Act One Upfront Market will Open Friday, October 13.

The structure is similar to other pitching events. You will submit a logline and synopsis of your project online at our secure website, along with your profile (bio or company information). These will be read by the participating producers/executives after which you will be emailed a list of the producers/executives who have requested to meet with you to hear your pitch in person. On the day of the event, you will have a 20-minute (including transition time) one-on-one pitch session with each executive who has requested to meet with you.

NOTE: Only 3 submissions are allowed for each participating alum. Each submission MUST be backed by a completed, polished script that you must upload upon submission.
