Stareable Fest, the premier annual indie T.V. and web series festival, is returning to NYC in October 2022, and submissions are open!
Stareable Fest 2021's industry-leading marketplace connected our Official Selections to curated 1:1s with senior execs at:
* AMC Networks
* BBC America
* CNN Originals
* Conde Nast
* Disney TV Animation
* Group Nine
* Roku Originals
We announced Stareable First Look in April 2021, and are now sending our best Genre (sci-fi, fantasy, and horror) projects to AMC Networks each month. [https://bit.ly/3yq4bt3]
Since then, we've created a licensing partnership with The Roku Channel, offering mainstream distribution to our indie Official Selections.
Stareable is becoming THE pipeline between indie digital creators and mainstream Hollywood. Maybe that’s why the LA Times identified us as “transforming the industry”? [https://lat.ms/3Dt0KFQ]

We only accept pilots or episodic series that are English language or English-subtitled.
We have no premiere requirements.
For short-form projects where episodes average <10 minutes, please submit 3 or more episodes. For pilots or long-form projects where episodes average >10 minutes, please submit one or more episodes.
Please only submit your best work - projects are judged based on the overall quality of the entirety of your submission.
Stareable Fest NYC 2022 is currently anticipated to be an in-person physical event but may be virtual as the situation requires. Marketplace meetings will be offered both in-person or virtually. While Stareable Fest NYC will make best efforts to maintain our current plans, we cannot offer refunds if our plans change.
