Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers



The NYTVF was launched in 2005 as the industry’s first creative festival for television artists. A pioneer of the “independent television” movement, the Festival strives to construct a new and innovative path for program development. Where a film festival showcases completed works of art, competing for distribution and ready for the market, the NYTVF showcases ideas and talent, complementing the development process required for network, studio and branded entertainment development.

Make the next great television drama, sitcom, digital series or unscripted format. Win guaranteed TV development deals!

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 2014 Festival Development Partners HERE.



  • Official Selections of the 2015 IPC will be eligible for: 
  • Category awards including Comedy, Drama/Dramedy, Unscripted, and Short-Form Web Series
  • Individual achievement awards including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Writing, and Best Director
