The first-ever ‘Pitch Pit’ screenwriting competition will FADE IN: on Tuesday, Feb. 13 at Create! in Kent.

Here’s how it will work:

  • Watch 6 local screenwriters compete to take two concepts in 6 compelling directions while the clock is running.
  • The audience votes on the winners, so everybody in the building is making creative choices.
  • The writers get immediate feedback and a couple of them leave with money in their pockets.
  • Brief, breezy, and brutal. Just like real life.
