– MONOCHROME has been selected as to participate in CINE PitchFest Presented by A&E: Be Original.
Kodi Zene will pitch MONOCHROME at the Austin, TX session on October 26th 2016.
Launched in 2015, CINE PitchFest gives independent producers, writers and directors in each city the opportunity to pitch to one of the industry’s largest cable networks.
At each session, 5 participants will pitch their projects to a panel of A&E executives, network and talent reps, and pro filmmakers before a live audience. One winner will receive a formal pitch meeting with A&E executives.
Participants were selected through an open application process. Applications were anonymously evaluated by a CINE panel on the strength of the project idea, its viability and its potential match with the A&E brand.
