Stareable Fest, the premier annual indie T.V. and web series festival, is expanding to L.A. in April 2022, and submissions are open!

Stareable Fest 2021's industry-leading marketplace connected our Official Selections to curated 1:1s with senior execs at:

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. []

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”? []

More details here:

Awards for:

* Best in Category
* Writing
* Acting
* Editing
* Cinematography
* Directing
* Innovation in storytelling, i.e. new media (interactive/transmedia) elements []

We only accept streaming, episodic, and English language or English-subtitled shows.

Please only submit your best work - projects are judged based on the overall quality of the entirety of your submission.

Official Selections will be screened at Stareable Fest provided that the screener is under 30 minutes in length.

Stareable Fest L.A. 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 L.A. will make best efforts to maintain our current plans, we cannot offer refunds if our plans change.

    I was so impressed by the quality of the virtual festival this year - while it was too bad not to be able to gather in person, the organization and communication was top notch all the way through. I had a great time screening my series, THE BOXCAR ADULTS, and was so impressed with the quality of the programming as well as the networking and meeting opportunities. Thanks to Ajay, Sarah, and the whole crew!

    Even in the midst of a pandemic they curated a very talented group of creators and fostered opportunities for networking and camaraderie.

    Everyone was super friendly and the networking opps were great and insightful. Only wish covid wasn't happening so I could have made it back to NYC to watch with a live audience :)
