We are currently accepting TV Pilot submissions through Withoutabox for both comedy and drama pilots.

The North Fork TV Festival separates itself from other Festivals of its kind by ONLY selecting Indie TV pilots we believe are ready to be a series. This means that if you are selected, you will be one of less than 6 pilots screened, providing concrete opportunities for creators to forge connections with executives, agents, and more.

Minimum running time is 13 minutes and maximum is 1 hour for consideration. Electronic press kits are encouraged but not required. Feel free to explore last year's pilot trailers, as examples.  If you encounter an issue, please contact us.

Early Deadline: April, 30, 2018
Submission Fee: $10

Regular Deadline: May, 31, 2018
Submission Fee: $20

Late Deadline: June 30, 2018
