Do you have an idea for an original movie? Will you be at Philidelphia Comic Con? This could be the chance of a lifetime! Columbia Pictures has announced they will be accepting content ideas online, with potential pitch sessions to be scheduled during Wizard World Comic Con Philidelphia, on Thursday and Friday (May 17-18) at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. This marks the second activation of the recently announced collaboration between the pop culture convention producer and leading studio, following a successful debut earlier this month in Portland, Oregon.
Whether a paid attendee, artist or exhibitor, anyone who plans on attending Wizard World Comic Con Philadelphia and can be available on Thursday and/or Friday, May 17-18, may submit an idea now through May 10 at 5 p.m. PT via Wizard World’s dedicated Website. One idea submission per person, and in order to be considered, they must be complete, fully-owned original ideas and not infringe on any copyrighted material. Anyone participating in a pitch must be a registered Wizard World Comic Con Philidelpha attendee, artist, or exhibitor, and must be 18 years of age or older and a legal US resident.
“After such positive feedback in our first sessions at Wizard World Comic Con Portland, we are excited to team up with Columbia Pictures on identifying outstanding original ideas from our creative attendees, artists, and exhibitors in Philadelphia,” said John D. Maatta, CEO of Wizard World. “We look forward to seeing a variety of submissions and see this as an important step in a broad-based relationship with Columbia Pictures as Wizard World furthers its lead role in the pop culture industry.”
