SeriesFest Season 9 will take place May 5–10, 2023.
SeriesFest is a festival celebrating the art of independent TV series creation — here in the birthplace of cable television. The event showcases the best new pilots from across the globe by both seasoned and emerging content creators in an international, juried competition. As the LA Times put it, SeriesFest aims "to give television its own Sundance."
The festival's screenings will take place at the state-of-the-art Sie FilmCenter, with additional programs and events at a variety of Denver venues and beautiful Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre. SeriesFest is currently pursuing expanded opportunities and partnerships that will provide exciting programming, conversations and networking events that bring together the SeriesFest community. SeriesFest is proud to once again partner with the Denver Film Society.
The annual festival will include competition screenings, engaging panel discussions (including one with RuPaul’s Drag Race EPs Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey and Tom Campbell) and one-of-a-kind workshops. You'll also be privy to never-before-seen sneak peeks and television premieres, including the world premiere of "Hit Man: Secrets of Lies." Watch in-depth conversations with top television industry leaders like Kathryn Busby, Adam Lewinson and Wade Davis.
Laugh along to a Night of Comedy at Red Rocks with headliner Chelsea Handler and special guests Jay Pharoah, Adam Ray, and Joel McHale, who will introduce an entertaining screening presentation of the new workplace comedy "Animal Control" and perform an original stand-up set. Sit in on a live taping of CHINWAG, a new podcast series with actor Paul Giamatti and Professor Stephen Asma.
The SeriesFest international competition also continues this year with titles from creative voices from all over the world vying for the top prize in the categories of "Independent Pilot," "Digital Short Series," "Pitch-A-Thon!," "Collegiate Programs," "Late Night," "Pilots in Progress," and more.
