NYFA Screenwriting Graduates Celebrate with Industry Pitch Fest Event

May 25, 2016 Graduating MFA, AFA and BFA New York Film Academy Screenwriting students recently attended their culminating Industry Pitch Fest Event, held at the penthouse ballroom of the Andaz Hotel up on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.

A catered event and mingling opportunity for the students, executives, and faculty alike, this capstone event celebrated the New York Film Academy’s graduating Screenwriting students, offering them a professional outlet to jumpstart their careers by pitching their thesis projects to industry executives.

These writing students spent their final semester in their Business of Screenwriting classes working with Business of Screenwriting Instructors David O'Leary and Doc Pedrolie, in conjunction with Faculty Chair Nunzio DeFilippis and Associate Chair Adam Finer, on preparing and fine-tuning their pitches for their thesis film and TV projects. And they shined on this pinnacle evening, leaving with new professional contacts and a wave of interest in the scripts they’d worked so hard on all year.

Considered by the school to be their first night as professional screenwriters, this group of bright students brought their A-game, as they pitched agents, managers and production company representatives in a relaxed, round-table environment.

Organized and hosted by O’Leary, the event featured representatives from various Hollywood companies, including literary agencies, management companies, and TV and Film production companies.

Attendees included: BenderSpink, Bright Whale Entertainment, Broad Green Pictures, Blumhouse, Hutch Parker Entertainment, Imagination 9, Ineffable Pictures, Infinity Media, Mad Chance, Madhouse Entertainment, Magnet Management, Manifest Talent Group, No Bull Script, Original Film, Open Vault Productions, Quadrant Pictures, RatPac Entertainment, Red Hour, Reel FX/Witness Protection, Sandalphon Entertainment, The Savage Agency, Scenario Entertainment, Storyscape Entertainment, and Super Vision Entertainment.

NYFA wishes to thank all of its participants, particularly our industry guests, without whom this evening could not have been possible. Also, we’d like to extend a big congratulations to all of our Spring '15 MFA, BFA and AFA graduates!
