Pitch your feature film project

Cascade Writers’ Couch invites you to pitch your feature film projects! By adapting the standard development process to allow for new talent to enter, they’re able to offer writers from all walks of life the opportunity to further their screenwriting careers. Through Cascade Writers’ Couch they hope to discover outstanding writing talent, develop long-term relationships and develop scripts into successful films.

The Cascade Media Development team – Mark Fisher, Cora Palfrey, Daniel Campos Pavoncelli, Kristin Irving and manager of the initiative Sam Cheetham – wish to uncover raw writing talent irrespective of an individual’s background.
