SeriesFest Season 6 will take place June 18–24, 2020. This year's festival will be a virtual event.
What Is SeriesFest?
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 usually take place at the state-of-the-art Sie FilmCenter, with additional programs and events at a variety of Denver venues. However, due to COVID-19, this year's SeriesFest will take place online as a series of virtual events. While the festival will no longer be an in-person event this summer in Denver, the virtual festival programming will continue to serve the festival's mission to champion artists at the forefront of episodic storytelling. 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.
