The Urban Mediamakers is a consortium celebrating content creators who use new technology to create a multitude of interactive projects. The non-profit organization gives urban content creators an opportunity to showcase their artistry as they tell stories of their communities, compete with peers, hone their skills through educational series and interact with public supporters of media excellence. With projects from all genres, the Urban Mediamakers bring a mixed bag of media projects from animations to dramas to sci-fi and fantasy.
One of the biggest challenges for independent content creators of color is making the right connections with industry movers-and-shakers. To answer that challenge, the Urban Mediamakers is proud to present the third annual Urban PitchFest 2021 — putting urban content creators in front of producers, directors, investors, agents and managers for an opportunity to pitch their projects in all genres.
You are invited to participate in the Urban PitchFest taking place Saturday, October 16, 2021, during the 20th Urban Mediamakers Festival (UMF) online for the world to participate. [Get tickets today!]
