Mission Statement

ITVFest exists to increase the literary and visual works in television, film and web.

With the majority of today's visual content being created outside of the major networks & studios, independent artists have become a central force within the entertainment industry generating their own revenue streams and fan bases solely on the merits of their outstanding talent and engaging content.

For these artists, ITVFest (the Independent Television and Film Festival) is the premier festival for showcasing, celebrating and distinguishing the world’s best independently produced television shows, web series, multimedia content and short films.

Technologically savvy and forward thinking, ITVFest prides itself on being for and about the creators of quality content - regardless of industry status. Our content creators range from new filmmakers to past Emmy winners.

At its core, ITVFest is about creative passion, quality of talent and connecting the world's best independently produced stories.
