At each Stareable Fest, we connect our Official Selections to 1:1 meetings with an expanding list of production companies, studios, distributors, and more. Last year we set up 200 meetings with 60 execs from AMC Networks, Macro, MGM, Untitled, Disney, Blumhouse, CNN Originals, Conde Nast, Group Nine, Roku, Stampede, Tubi, and Topic.

On top of connecting you to execs, we’re building a growing list of formal industry partnerships that we can offer to you:

- A first look deal at Sony Pictures Television, the biggest indie TV studio, sharing our Selections to their development executives
- Access to UTA’s ecosystem, now that Stareable is repped by UTA, one of the top 3 talent agencies in Hollywood
- Licensing opportunities, like 30+ of our past Official Selections who we landed on The Roku Channel
- A food-and-travel show incubator with VIZIO, producing new original content for their streaming channels

We have built the leading marketplace for indie TV and web series creators in the television industry.

    A well-run, industry-connected festival that was full of supportive and friendly creators.
    My co-creator and I had a great and rewarding time at Stareable. We loved every moment of the three days. Also, the general meetings we were set up with were meaningful and exciting. Thank you to Ajay, Sarah and the whole Stareable crew, who put on the best web series and indie TV festival there is.
