New York Television Festival 2018

By Jason Godbey, Creative Director, Behind the Rabbit Productions

The New York Television Festival is thriving in its 10th year. It’s a festival more about informing the participating creators and matching them with networks than red carpet galas and fan screenings.

NYTVF has a very pragmatic way of approaching a festival. All of the panels were very informative with useful, practical information. The network executives and television writers paint a realistic picture of what it was like to deal with a network as a new show creator as well as what it would be like to be in a writers’ room.  There were also panels discussing what writers can expect from general meetings and pitch meetings. They gave practical advice on pitching and how to manage relationships in the business.

NYTVF is a difficult festival to get into with a finished pilot or a script. Everyone who spoke on a panel or as a keynote speaker spoke about NYTVF as an exclusive club. Everyone with work in the festival should be proud to be there and take advantage of the opportunity. If you want to make television and you feel your work is strong, I would highly recommend it.

For more on NYTVF and the festivals we’ve covered this year, check out our No Rest for the Weekend podcast.
