“I’m inspired by how Stareable continues to find new ways to support and nurture the next generation of indie storytellers. I look forward to supporting their movement in building their community on both their platform and their festival“ – Bernie Su, 2-time Emmy-award winning web series creator and the keynote speaker from Stareable Fest 2018.
After the enormous success of the inaugural event, Stareable, the largest community of web series creators, is proud to announce its second annual Stareable Fest, now officially open for submissions.
The 2019 festival will take place July 19th-21st, 2019, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, recognizing Brooklyn’s growing role as the heart of New York City’s creative community, and is seeking short and long form indie TV and web series in the genres of comedy, drama, and unscripted/ reality/documentary.
Additionally, creators can once again submit a 90 second pitch video for an opportunity to present their show concept live to a panel of judges composed of industry executives, which in 2018 included executives from Comedy Central and PBS.
All Official Selections in 2019 will be considered for meetings with industry executives as part of the Stareable Fest Marketplace, which last year included Warner Bros, PBS, Comedy Central, and Bustle.
Stareable Fest is half industry marketplace, creating face-to-face connections between independent filmmakers and decision makers at major networks and platforms and half creator convention, with workshops and panels about how to be a more effective filmmaker.
Filmmakers can submit at FilmFreeway.com/StareableFest, with the early bird deadline ending January 31st, 2019.
