Created in 2000, the annual Innoversity Creative Summit is a marketplace for great ideas and a meeting place for those who work in the media and cultural sector. With practical and creative workshops, panels and showcases, thought-provoking guest speakers, a Pitch Competition, and many opportunities to launch ideas, Innoversity serves to refresh, invigorate and inspire.

The Pitch Competition launch date for the 2014 Innoversity Creative Summit is Friday, August 8, 2014. If you have a TV scripted or unscripted, film, or digital media project that falls under the categories of Innovation, Diversity and Creativity, then you may be interested in registering. The deadline for registration is October 1, 2014. 

Pitch Competition Finalist teams are selected by media industry jurors to participate in an intensive all day boot camp with acclaimed instructors. Finalist teams are trained by 16 instructors including executives from Bell Media, The Movie Network, Shaw Media, along with award-winning industry veterans Anita Lee (NFB), Peter Raymont, Fred Fuchs, Ana Serrano (Canadian Film Centre), among many others. The teams then continue on to do in-person pitches on Tuesday, October 28 and Wednesday, October 29 before a room of judges comprised of TV, film and digital media professionals. 

Sixteen finalist teams are selected and coached to compete for a terrific array of prizes, including months of priceless private mentorships with media industry giants and face-to-face coaching by Canada’s top media professionals, who have won hundreds of international awards including  Emmy, Sundance, Berlin and Peabody awards.
