From its humble beginnings in 1999, the Realscreen Summit has, over the past 20 years, cemented its standing as the definitive global market and conference for the business of unscripted and non-fiction entertainment. For two decades, delegates from around the world have convened at the Summit to network with, and learn from the leading lights of the industry, making it a must-attend event for content creators, distributors, agents, commissioners and multi-platform broadcasters of unscripted and factual content.

From Albert Maysles to David Zaslav, the Realscreen Summit has featured the best and brightest business and creative minds in non-fiction entertainment, and for its 20th anniversary milestone edition, delegates can expect to be educated and inspired by an incredible array of thought leaders, deal makers and disruptors from within the industry and beyond. In addition, the Realscreen team, in conjunction with the Summit's advisory board and a special 20th anniversary executive committee, is crafting new content and networking initiatives that will make the event a fresh and vital experience for return attendees and first-timers alike.

The Realscreen Summit - helping you to "Reinvent the Real" for 20 years.

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN YOUR REGISTRATION?
YOUR NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES
It’s no exaggeration for me to say that there wouldn’t be a Stephen David Entertainment without Realscreen. In 2010, I started my company with a home equity line in a one room office, by myself. But Realscreen made it possible for me to get in front of network people and make my first sale. Everything we’ve done since was built up from that point. Realscreen has become a huge resource for us in terms of connecting with executives and vital information. I would advise anyone trying to break into the business to start with Realscreen.
- Stephen David, CEO, Stephen David Entertainment
