During the Impact program, around 20 selected Creators are paired with a Shaper - a best in class screenwriters and showrunners - to take their projects from the idea stage to a fully-realized screen or series story. Shaper and Creator pairs meet twice weekly as the Creators hone their ideas into polished scripts and series bibles.
In addition, we host weekly dinners and lunches featuring keynote speakers and panels where Creators and Shapers can hear stories and receive advice from renown leaders of all industries in an informal, social setting.
The program culminates in Pitch Day, where the Creators project to a select group of international buyers, producers, showrunners, and representatives.
