Realscreen Summit 2018

Celebrating 20 years of reinventing the real

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.

Get unprecedented access to international decision-makers

Realscreen Summit brings together creators, buyers and distributors of unscripted and non-fiction programming for four days of panels, pitching and networking.

Realscreen events provide unrivaled access to leaders in the international business of unscripted and non-fiction entertainment.

Learn from industry leaders

Glean practical insight into the business of unscripted and non-fiction entertainment from industry leaders — the ones that are driving trends and change — as they participate in lively debates, topical panels and roundtable discussions.

Fast-track your business

Through our signature Luncheon Roundtable, Meet a Mentor, Meet an Expert, Speed Pitching and 30 Minutes With… sessions, we make it easy to make the connections you need to propel your business, and bring you face to face with industry-leading executives.

Networking Opportunities

Realscreen Summit prides itself 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. The Summit makes it all possible.

  • Speed Pitching: Now you’re talking fast!

Get coveted face time with top executives who have the power to greenlight your project. Programming execs take one-on-one three-minute pitches. Slots are assigned via lottery closer to the event. Now you have the opportunity to deliver that pitch you’ve been polishing.

  • Luncheon Roundtables

Spend some quality time getting to know the buyers who can greenlight your projects. You’ll have a chance to share a meal in small groups with one of 20-plus commissioning execs. Bon appétit!

  • 30 Minutes With

These intimate and interactive sessions feature some of the most in-demand unscripted buyers and commissioners talking candidly about their programming strategies, future plans and priorities. Seating is limited to 40 delegates to maintain an up-close-and-personal vibe.

  • Meet A Mentor

Realscreen’s “Meet a Mentor” series is designed to give delegates rare access to the top producers in unscripted programming.

Much like the Summit’s trademark “30 Minutes With…” series, delegates attending “Meet a Mentor” sessions will be able to glean valuable information in an intimate, “off the record” setting, and have the opportunity to ask questions that will help guide you in your career.

  • Meet An Expert

As part of networking series designed to grow your connections, the summit has assembled some of the top agencies and distributors in factual entertainment and made them available for you to meet with. Find out what these industry experts can offer you and your production.

  • RealXchange

Showcase your work. Discover new projects and partners! Connect with others, and book networking meetings. It’s all here to keep you connected at the event – on your laptop, smartphone, or tablet.

When you register for realXchange, you’ll easily be able to connect with others attending the event. Set up meetings in advance, or connect before or after the event. Once you’re in realXchange, you’ll see how easy it is to share your project concepts, make connections, and arrange valuable networking meetings.
