Hailed as the “go-to” conference for the Documentary and Reality communities, WESTDOC offers unparalleled access to Senior Network Executives, Program Buyers and top Production Companies. Back for its fourth year, this three-day event brings together preeminent producers, directors, writers, network executives, agents and distributors for insightful and unique seminars, as well as networking opportunities.
WESTDOC focuses on three areas of professional interest: Reality, Documentary and Digital. As the three disciplines merge in today’s media marketplace, our panels reflect this evolution: whether you’re a veteran documentarian trying to
make sense of the Kickstarter revolution or a fledgling producer aiming to turn your web series into a reality program on traditional cable TV, WESTDOC has something for everybody in the non-fiction arena.
The third day of the conference is entirely devoted to PitchFest, a rousing live presentation for Documentary and Reality producers to pitch new concepts to network and development executives for potential acquisition in front of a live audience.
With a very impressive schedule of panels, case studies, exclusive networking events and master classes, the WESTDOC Conference is now established as the conference not to be missed by producers and directors of non-fiction/documentary and reality TV programming creators."
