The Independent Pilot Competition (IPC) is the NYTVF’s flagship, annual initiative, accepting independently-produced, original television pilots and series, short films, and short-form web series from around the globe. If your project is episodic in nature and is meant to be consumed in multiple chapters over time, then it’s TV.
IPC submissions should be between 4 and 60 minutes in length, and all genres are welcome (Comedy, Unscripted/Doc, Drama, Family, Animation, etc). If submitting an unscripted/docu-series pilot, sizzle reels and/or character tapes are recommended. Official Selections in the IPC have the exclusive opportunity to screen in competition at the annual New York Television Festival, held in NYC. IPC Official Selections are also eligible for the competition’s category and individual achievement awards as well as guaranteed development deals from Festival Development Partners. See 2015 Festival Development Partners HERE.
