Join AFF for a day of pitching fun! Fine tune your pitch before you take on the big leagues at AFF 2019 with AFF’s Pitch day on Sunday, July 28. This workshop is great to practice an elevator-style pitch and can help writers to conquer their fears of public speaking and selling themselves.
Start your day off with an intimate Pitch Workshop!
Next, enjoy a generous break – plenty of time to practice your pitch with other workshop attendees and grab a drink or two before… The Pitch Party! Be sure to invite your friends because there is also going to be an audience award-winner! Guests can arrive at 2:30 pm for drinks and mingling.
In our final event of the day, pitch contest participants will have 90 seconds to pitch to a live audience and a panel of judges. One winner will be crowned Pitcher Extraordinaire and win a Lone Star Badge and Pitch Ticket for the 2019 Austin Film Festival for a chance to do it all again!
