AMC Re-Teams With Stareable Fest to Discover the Best Female Creators
Got a great web or indie TV series idea? Here's your chance to share it.
Following a successful partnership in 2020, AMC has once again teamed with Stareable Fest, the premier annual web series and indie TV festival, to help discover and elevate talented underrepresented creators. For the second year in a row, AMC is sponsoring a prize for the best female creators.
To be eligible to win, the majority of the show’s creator/director/producer team must be made up of women. Category prize finalists could earn meetings with executives overseeing AMC's networks and streaming platforms as part of the festival’s industry marketplace. Last year, Gretl Claggett's STORMCHASER took the top honor.
Stareable is the largest community for web series creators, giving thousands of creators the tools to engage, grow, and monetize their audiences. Their festival, Stareable Fest, is the marquee event in the web series and indie TV industry, connecting creators to mainstream Hollywood. The fourth annual festival will take place October 14-17 at New York City’s Public Hotel (tentatively) as well as virtually.
All festival Official Selections will be considered for meetings with industry executives as part of the Stareable Fest Marketplace. In past years, award winners have been acquired by major networks, studios, and platforms.
