Bob Schultz has been the Executive Director of the Great American Screenwriting Conference & PitchFest (GAPF) for ten years, helping to develop a community of screenwriters and make the GAPF the #1 rated PitchFest and screenwriting conference in the world. In 2012, The Great American Screenwriting Conference & PitchFest crossed the Atlantic to christen The Great British PitchFest. Joining the Great Canadian PitchFest on the international scene, Bob and GAPF founder/screenwriter Signe Olynyk have grown their event – the only one of its kind created by screenwriters for screenwriters – to reflect the international marketplace for screenplays and independent film. Bob and Signe produced the thriller Below Zero, starring Edward Furlong (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, American History X, The Green Hornet) and Michael Berryman (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Hills Have Eyes, Weird Science), which has won 16 awards and been in more than 30 festivals worldwide. Below Zero is currently in worldwide distribution. They are currently producing the zombie thriller Breakdown Lane (written and directed by Bob), which has completed principle photography, planning the 11th annual Great American Screenwriting Conference & PitchFest, and the second annual Great British PitchFest.
