Pitch

Pitch is a Canadian documentary created by Kenny Hotz and Spencer Rice, featuring themselves as two young filmmakers attending theToronto Film Festival to pitch a film concept to various celebrities.

Their film idea, titled “The Dawn”, concerns a Mafia don who goes for a hernia operation but gets a sex change instead. During the 1996 Toronto fest, they approach Roger Ebert, Norman Jewison (at a packed press conference), Eric Stoltz (leaving a limo), Al Pacino, and others without much success. On a roll, they leave Toronto for Hollywood, getting advice from Arthur Hiller and Neil Simon and finding an agent who expresses interest in their pitch. The film was shown at the 1997 Toronto Film Festival.

The film features songs by the Toronto band Phono-Comb.
