Re: Nehst - Larry Meistrich?
He's very legit. He produced Sling Blade and You Can Count On Me. He's looking for ten films to produce within a slate. He has international distribution and funding in place.
And, he's a very nice New Yorker (smile.)
I believe he's looking for things that can be shot in Connecticut, N. Carolina and Colorado.
I've never attended a pitch fest. But you could just query them via normal email I would assume.
From what I'm told, they're about to make an announcement and expect to be hit hard. So, I'd do it soon.
