CFE: NYC Indie Film Festival

The 9th Annual NYC Indie Film Festival will present 300 indie films, and this year we’re expanding to TWO new categories: TV Pilots and Web Series!
TV Pilot: This category is for pilots (first episodes) only of any genre. You may submit either a half-hour (21-28 minutes) or hour-long (42-50 minutes) pilot.
Web Series: This category is for web series episode(s) of any genre. The maximum length for submission in 10 minutes, you may submit multiple episodes as long as the total runtime is 10 minutes or less. If your show is serialized in its storytelling, we recommend submitting the pilot so the audience will have as much context as possible. 
All filmmakers who submit will receive FREE access to casting tools and talent database provided by Backstage. Click here for more information about Backstage.
