About Realscreen West
Seven years since its inception as Realscreen's Factual Entertainment Forum, Realscreen West has indisputably become the West Coast's most important and valuable unscripted entertainment conference. Last year's sold-out event attracted over 1000 delegates from around the globe for two days of panels, pitching and networking. Over 200 of those in attendance were buyers of unscripted programming and deals were certainly done!
This year's event moves (back) to the Fairmont Miramar Hotel on June 1–3, 2015 and registration includes access to the Realscreen Awards, the global celebration of non-fiction and factual entertainment excellence.

Realscreen West networking sessions provide unparalleled access to decision makers
We pride ourselves on making it easy to make meaningful industry connections. Meet face to face, listen and ask questions in intimate sessions, enjoy breakfast or lunch with executives, or even pitch your project. We make it all possible.
Speed Pitching. Now you’re talking, fast
Get coveted face time with top executives who have the power to green-light your project. Programming execs take individual one-on-one three-minute pitches. Slots are limited, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Now you have the opportunity to deliver that pitch you’ve been polishing.
Spend some quality time getting to know the buyers who can green-light your projects. You’ll have a chance to share a meal in small groups with one of 20-plus commissioning execs. Bon appétit!
