We are excited to announce the Winner and Runner ups for the Spring 2023 ScreenCraft Virtual Pitch!

Eight amazing finalists were selected from more than 900 submissions to pitch their projects virtually to an esteemed jury at the ScreenCraft Virtual Pitch Finale.

Our incredible jury included Daniela Gonzalez (Manager, Good Fear Content), Tyler Tice (Writer, Netflix's DAYSHIFT),  and Kim Dwinell, (Co-EP and Author of SURFSIDE GIRLS).


The Last Supper by Nishanth R., Jacob Staudenmaier

When Jesus Christ is murdered by poisoning during the Last Supper, the Twelve Apostles - trapped by a torrential downpour - turn on one another with wild accusations and theories to identify the killer... until it falls on an unlikely detective to put all the pieces together.

First Runner-up:

Diary of a Mafiosa by Georgia Sampson

Inspired by the life and crimes of Virginia Hill and the Chicago Mob outfit, my pilot, Diary of a Mafiosa, follows an assistant in the 1960s Senate hearings offices as she unfolds the story of the only high-ranking woman in the mafia, or rather the only mafiosa in the mob’s history.

Second Runner-up:

Pig & Bear by Tommy Heleringer

A sex-hungry pig and love-junkie bear navigate life in the Big Apple "one day at a time."
