Welcome to the golden age of television, where captivating episodic shows draw Hollywood's biggest stars.  Cable and streaming providers are hungry for all sorts of short form content to meet their programming needs, but the festivals that once connected up-and-coming voices to the industry are still markedly focused on feature films, despite obvious changes in the market and individual viewing habits.

At The TV Fest, we showcase projects meant to dazzle on the small screen in order to help bridge the gap between new content makers and the entertainment industry. We amplify talent regardless of budget or genre, so if you have a compelling program and a unique perspective, there is a place for you here.

Our submission categories are designed to promote a broad range of narrative and reality programming, including, but not limited to; pilots, game shows, web series, documentaries, film trailers, music videos and short films that have the potential to be built into a larger series. Please see our Submissions page for further details.
