About FreshPitch


Founded in 2016 as an industry trade and cultural exchange platform, Fresh Pitch focuses on the discovery and incubation of real image contents. It is also an exhibition brand which concentrates on “venture investment and cross-border communication of non-fictional contents”.

 

FreshPitch is based in China and integrates the world's top industry resources. It is rooted in the real image and at the same time conducts in-depth cross-border cooperation in the fields of science and technology, media and design, etc.

 

FreshPitch brings together cross-regional, cross-industry and cross-cultural experts and image creators, with pre-sale transactions of pitches as the core section, professional forums and project promotion as the key content, and screening and crossover activities as side events. It will bring China's real image creators and their works to the world stage, and also give the world a fresh perspective on young China.
