Shark-Tank-Like Event Brings Investors & Filmmakers Together

Nov. 16th, 2023 - 2PM to 5pm


For the first time, The Lion’s Den DFW, a Shark-Tank-like Christian ‘Business as Mission’ program that matches for-profit companies and projects with a broad base of investors will be at the ICVM Storytellers Conference on Nov. 17th, bringing a condensed version of their world-renowned program to ICVM to listen to pre-chosen presentations and also share their tips on how best to approach Christian investors and get your Christian film-related company launched, expanded, or your movie made! 
Even if you aren’t pre-chosen to present, attendees will be able to sit in the presentations and learn the craft of presenting to investors during the 3-hour event. The Lion's Den DFW staff & investors will also do a Q&A with the audience, and afterwards we participate in a meet-and-greet event!  Later that night, we'll feature Angel Studios' early showing of THE CHOSEN Season 3 Opening Episode at a movie theater nearby.
THE ICVM STORYTELLERS CONFERENCE is shaping up as a God-honoring event that will give Christian filmmakers the tools to succeed and provide the relationships with investors, distributors, other filmmakers and professionals to help bring film projects and companies to life! 
The INVESTORS LIONS DEN event joins other conference highlights like the ICVM Script & Story Pitch-a-thon on Nov. 18th, and the 2nd annual Christian Film Market (CFM) on Nov. 19th, along with many seminars, speakers, screenings and networking events.
These events are all included in the 4-day conference registration price. Go to:  for more info.
The INVESTORS LIONS DEN will be looking for well-prepared and documented presentations for Christian film-related businesses (studios, post houses, streaming networks, production companies, etc.) or films and television shows. ALL APPLICATIONS WILL BE VETTED BY LION’S DEN DFW, NOT BY ICVM.


Only one to three presentations may be selected for ICVM's INVESTORS LIONS DEN, but even if yours is not chosen, you will learn how to make your package more investor-friendly, and you will still be eligible for other Lion's Den DFW events (see 'a' and 'b' below.)
