Independent Television Festival Los Angeles

~ July 31 – August 6, 2009 The 2009 Independent Television Festival, now in its fourth year, is still the only festival in the world for webseries and independently produced television pilots. The Independent Television Festival is more than just the only festival in the world for independent television pilots and webseries, it is also, as attendees have called it “just excellent”, “one-of-a-kind”, and “spectacular”. Nowhere else does such a talented group of television producers, internet producers and aspiring artists in both mediums congregate to share their business. The attendees and producers of ITVFest content are people who are truly connected to the digital world. ITVFest is a non-profit organization with the mission of encouraging change in conventional television and the growth of artistic expression in television and new media. Simultaneously, ITVFest provides local, national and international artistic communities with a public forum for independently produced television pilots. Involvement in the festival could give you access to thousands of current and next-gen entertainment professionals over the course of five months leading up to one very full week of a festival that includes exciting screenings from around the world, engaging and informative panel sessions, pitch meetings and parties. If you think this is something you might be interested in, we’d love to have the opportunity to discuss this in more detail, as there are opportunities for sponsorships and partnerships. Additionally, if you have clients or projects that you would like to see screened at an event like this, feel free to forward on the following blurb to the relevant parties. I look forward to hearing from you.
