Virtual Pitch Fest was created in 2005 by producer David Kohner Zuckerman and screenwriter Katie Coyle.

When meeting at the LA Screenwriting Expo, Katie and David noticed the long lines of writers waiting to pitch Hollywood pros without any assurance their material would ever get read. It also seemed attendees ran the risk of being judged on their showmanship, rather than the quality of their writing. In talking further, the duo soon realized they could eliminate these downsides, plus the costly travel and conference fees writers were paying for live pitch events.

A year later, VPF was launched with one simple pledge: that query letters sent to Pros you pick would all be answered within 5 business days. Now in its eighth year, the site has many success stories and thousands of writers continue to enjoy VPF's guaranteed access to Hollywood Pros.
