A different KIND OF CONFERENCE
PRACTICAL WORKSHOPS ABOUT MAKING GREAT TELEVISION
Now in its sixth year, FactualWEST is a one-of-a-kind, one day conference for mid-career and senior creators, producers and crew working in factual, lifestyle, reality and documentary television. We bring together top showrunners, broadcasters, creators and producers for a day of workshops designed to help you increase your skills, learn practical tips and get useful insights you can use move your career and your projects forward.
FOCUS ON WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT & stay ahead of the curve
Our sessions focus on developing the skills you care about most: Storytelling, Producing, Field Skills, Post-Production and Development. We’re also bringing in top-level creators and producers who are making exceptional shows to share their ideas on new ways of doing things. This year, we’re adding opportunities to pitch your projects.
