About Realscreen Summit

You are not currently viewing the most recent Realscreen Summit. Go to Realscreen Summit 2025.

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.

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.

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 commissioning execs. Bon appétit!

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 our networking series designed to grow your connections, we’ve 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.

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.

Pitching Partners
Similar to our Speed Pitching sessions, this is your chance to pitch to production companies and studios who are looking for great ideas and partnerships for their next big project.

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, smart phone, 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.

Coffee + Commissioners
Much like our Luncheon Roundtables sessions, Coffee + Commissioners are an informal networking opportunity for delegates to meet with commissioning and development execs over coffee and continental breakfast.

Cocktails With...
Chat over drinks with leading unscripted and non-fiction networks in this format that aims to loosen up the networking vibe and help you make deeper connections at channels that buy unscripted and non-fiction programming.

Speed Networking
Networking sessions designed for you to meet many like-minded potential partners in a short time period.
