We have created this cycle of competitions to search the web (and the world) for the most cutting-edge ‘content-creators’ and connect them with the most relevant professionals in the entertainment industry.  We want to give you an opportunity to experience the industry like those who have already had success in it, do, while giving established Hollywood institutions the chance to see just how exciting the landscape of self-motivated, passionate artists is.

These competitions connect fresh artists with established industry folks, but do so within a context that is truly meaningful to today’s marketplace.

Instead of remaining in a ‘festival’ vacuum, the concepts behind the competitions, as well as the people involved are ripped right out of today’s film and tv business.

So, in our competitions a screenplay, for example, is judged not just on its merits as a screenplay, but also as a possible writing sample or its potential for being re-imagined for television.
Produced Shorts, Docs and Web Series are evaluated as real executives would evaluate them…for their potential to become mainstream TV or feature content. 
A television executive who is looking for TOMORROW’S BREAK-OUT SHOW, doesn’t care what the source material begins as, he or she wants to know WHAT IT CAN BECOME.
An agent searching for TOMORROW’S NEXT GREAT TALENT, doesn’t care whether you have created a short, a doc, a web series or a feature…he or she wants to know whether your creation is viable in the marketplace.

"There are three types of people in the entertainment industry: Money, Talent and the people that connect the two.
As ‘connectors’, we have created this cycle of competitions to bring TALENT to MONEY, ARTISTS to BUSINESS DECISION-MAKERS, CONTENT to BUYERS.
