A Skills & Project Development Conference for people who work in
Factual, Lifestyle & Documentary Television
Friday, November 5 & Saturday, November 6, 2021 in Vancouver, BC
FACTUALWEST is the only conference in North America focusing exclusively on skills & project development for creators, crew and producers working in factual, lifestyle and documentary television.
Now in its sixth 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. It brings together top showrunners, broadcasters, creators and producers for 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.
The 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. They’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, it will be virtual but the goal is still the same.
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 they’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.
