In the Spotlight today is the 2nd AnnualTribeca TV Festival. Following the success of its inaugural edition in 2017, Tribeca TV will add another day to this year’s event. The line-up will feature premieres of new series alongside special events, including season sneak peeks, season finales, and dynamic conversations with some of the most prolific and creative directors, producers, writers, and actors in television.

New to the Tribeca TV Festival this year is Indie Pilots, a showcase of the most exciting new independent voices in episodic television. The program, which has been a part of the annual April Tribeca Film Festival, was created to identify and provide visibility for independent creators work in the episodic space.

"After a tremendous inaugural year and another successful Tribeca TV in April, it’s clear that there is more exciting work being created in episodic storytelling than ever before, and that audiences are hungrier than ever to discover it,” said Cara Cusumano, Director of Programming at the Tribeca Film Festival. "Our vision for Tribeca TV is a celebratory space that connects these two groups of viewers and creators that would otherwise be separated by the television screen through unique, live, big-screen events."

Tribeca TV Festival brings people together to discover and celebrate episodic storytelling on any screen - from TV to online to mobile. Created by Tribeca Enterprises, parent company of the Tribeca Film Festival, Tribeca TV is an extension of Tribeca’s April TV program into a standalone fall TV Festival and is the first dedicated TV festival created by a film festival.

Tribeca has a great tradition of introducing audiences to critically acclaimed and commercially successful episodic shows. With an overwhelming amount of TV programming currently available to viewers, the Tribeca TV Festival is a trusted curator to help audiences connect with the most compelling episodic storytelling in the new age of TV.

Eligible projects include: episodic content including projects created for broadcast television, cable network, and/or streaming, including pilots and episodes of existing series. All submitted episodes must be 10 minutes or longer in length. Submitted pilots must show the potential for serial growth.
