There is still time to register for the 7th edition of Realscreen West in Santa Monica, CA, the West Coast’s largest and most relevant international gathering of content creators, distributors and broadcasters in today’s non-fiction and unscripted entertainment industry.

Realscreen events are known for inspirational and timely content presented in an interesting variety of formats ranging from structured networking, to debates, keynotes and panel discussions including Trendwatch: Driving a Hybrid.

In the search for fresh approaches to unscripted programming, producers and networks are combining genres to arrive at innovative hybrids. Whether it’s finding inspiration from the drama and cinematic production values of the scripted world, or mixing up unscripted sub-genres, the challenge is to find the right mix of worlds to create something unique. Here you’ll learn about the challenges and potential opportunities in blending genres from successful mixmasters in the production and network spheres, and gain valuable insight into what works – and what doesn’t – when dabbling in hybrids.

Last year’s record-breaking event attracted nearly 1,100 delegates from around the globe, including 300 buyers of unscripted programming, and we’re on track to shatter those attendance numbers.

Don’t miss out on Meet a Mentor and Meet an Expert sign ups beginning tomorrow (May 13). Register now and get access to this great networking opportunity!

Registration includes admission to the Realscreen Awards. You can register online or by calling Joel Pinto at 1-416-408-2300 ext. 650.
