A DIFFERENT KIND OF CONFERENCE
PRACTICAL WORKSHOPS ABOUT MAKING GREAT TELEVISION
Now in its fourth year, FactualWEST is a one-of-a-kind, conference for mid-career and senior creators, producers and crew working in factual, lifestyle, reality and documentary television. We bring together top showrunners, broadcasters, creators and producers for a day of workshops designed to help you increase your skills, learn practical tips and get useful insights you can use move your career and your projects forward.
FOCUS ON WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT & STAY AHEAD OF THE CURVE
Our sessions are streamed so you can focus on developing the skills you care about most: Writing, Producing, Field and Post, Digital Storytelling. Each stream offers a number of practical sessions with top talent. We’re also bringing in top-level creators and producers who are making exceptional shows to share their ideas on new ways of doing things. This year, we’re adding opportunities to pitch your project.
NETWORK WITH YOUR PEERS & PITCH YOUR PROJECT TO EXECUTIVES
The TV business is all about relationships: with your peers, your bosses and your buyers. FactualWEST is all about giving people a chance to network and make the connections you need. That’s why we’re bringing the community together with top showrunners, executives and producers and, new this year, adding opportunities for you to pitch your ideas to buyers.
