One of the highlights for Second Rounders each year is our exclusive Roundtable Session where we put you directly in front of various agents, managers, producers, and established writers in an intimate setting. We’ll notify you before the sign-up opens. Second Rounders with a Producers Badge will have preference when signing up. You must have a badge to reserve your place!
Here’s the full lowdown:
Roundtable: The Art, Craft, and Business of Film and Television
Get in-depth answers to your questions about the art, craft, and business of screenwriting. This session offers Second Rounders from the Screenplay Competition exclusive access to writers, executives, studio reps, agents, managers, producers, and attorneys in an informal setting. Take advantage of this invaluable opportunity to ask burning questions like: What’s the best way to overcome writer’s block? Or risk a taking a new direction after established success? How do I find representation? Are studios buying spec scripts? What are emerging trends in the industry?
How It Works:
Show up for your Roundtable Session and you will be seated at a table with a small group of registrants and a veteran screenwriter, executive, or producer. The rest is up to you. After 25 minutes, panelists will get up and move to another table. This happens twice, so you will get to meet with at least 3 industry professionals during each session. These are not pitch sessions, but rather casual table meetings where you are encouraged to ask specific questions about the business of screenwriting and filmmaking. You are encouraged to come with questions in mind and business cards in hand.
