New York Television Festival
Established in 2005, the New York Television Festival is a pioneer of the independent television movement, constructing new and innovative paths of development and talent identification, while simultaneously complementing the traditional television development model. Its annual New York Television Festival – held each fall in New York City – is recognized as the industry’s first independent television festival, which provides a platform to elevate the work of artists creating for the small screen. Through the Festival and other year-round activities – including NYTVF London, which launched in 2011 – the NYTVF’s mission is to connect its community of independent creative artists with leading networks, studios and brands by cultivating relationships that lead to new opportunities and guaranteed deals for outstanding artists. So far in 2012 the NYTVF has announced a record eighteen guaranteed deals with partners including A&E, IFC, MTV, and more.
