Westdoc Opens 2013 Conference Registration

Westdoc co-founders Richard Propper and Chuck Braverman are gearing up for the conference’s fourth edition at the Landmark cinemas in West Los Angeles.

The West Coast docu and unscripted conference, which runs Sept. 15-18, will examine the connections between non-fiction docu and reality TV creators with agents, producers and broadcast execs and will showcase more than 150 industry speakers with a slew of panels, case studies and one-on-ones.

“We plan the conference so that it is relevant, cutting edge and so that participants will be rubbing shoulders with the decision makers,” Propper said.

Conference highlights include PitchFest, where creatives lob prospective projects directly at agents and execs in front of a live audience for acquisition or co-production funding. A cash prize will be awarded to the winner; past winners, “First Position” and “Indie Game: The Movie” went on to theatrical, broadcast and digital distribution. Additional panels will cover financing, packaging and selling one-offs or skeins, as well as key topics such as digital distribution models and online nets.

Participating companies include Discovery Channel, A&E, Animal Planet, Bravo, SyFy, PBS and History Channel, among others. Registration info, as well as a list of events and participation instructions, can be found at TheWestDoc.
