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]

    Stareable is a unique festival for TV content creators. They are laser-focused on connecting participants with relevant industry professionals. We met with five different producers who had watched our project. All of them were incredibly friendly and eager to help us out. The content we watched was super high-quality, and we enjoyed getting to know some of the creators socially. If you make episodic content this is a festival that is NOT to be missed.

  • The festival had a great team that kept everything moving despite needing to change the festival from in-person to digital format. Ajay and Sarah were organized, friendly, and very good communicators throughout the whole festival. I felt taken care of and comfortable the whole time. And not to mention, I learned a lot and met a ton of great creators! I highly recommend submitting your show to this festival. It's more than worth the small submission fee if you get selected!
