Filmmakers that submit early will have a head start in getting their projects seen by industry executives.
LOS ANGELES, CA- July 3rd, 2019- The Omni Cultural TV Fest (OCTVF) in partnership with NATPE (National Association of Television Program Executives) announced today that submissions for 2020 are now open.
Filmmakers that submit early will have a head start in getting their projects seen by industry executives. The festival acts as a bridge to merge content creators with industry professionals.
Produced by Kiki Melendez of Latin Hollywood Films and Cindy Cowan Entertainment, this unique multicultural platform for independent content producers provides an avenue for promoting new ideas in all genres for television and OTT platforms.
Thus far, the festival has been instrumental in getting five projects distributed through ShortsTV, a distribution deal through Maverick Entertainment, meetings with Abrams Artists Agency,
pitch meetings with Cindy Cowan and with All 3 Media, and requests for content from the prominent networks and studios such as Disney and Viacom. NATPE has also designated an OCTVF tab on their website so that buyers will have easy access to view the 2019 selections and winners in all the categories.
In its inaugural event at the landmark Egyptian Theater this past May, OCTVFmade an indelible impact on the industry receiving a 5-star rating and garnering critical acclaim from filmmakers, sponsors, partners, executives and attendees.
This year OCTVFwill be going on tour through Miami, NYC, San Francisco, San Diego, and LA to generate buzz prior to the grand event which is set for the first week of June 2020.
Omni Cultural TV Festis a one of a kind visual expo for emerging producers to showcase their work on the big screen in front of legitimate buyers.
Submissions in all genres of Television will be accepted: TV Pilots, TV sizzle reels (scripted and non-scripted), short form web series, TV movie trailers, foreign language TV sizzle reels, student submissions, animation and talk shows.
