New York Television Festival: Independent Television

This just in from Joshua Kinberg:

The New York Television Festival will launch in Manhattan from
September 28th through October 3rd in 2005. As the first creative
festival for the medium, the NYTVF will pioneer the movement of
"Independent Television" and construct a new path for program
development. Writers, directors and producers will be selected from a
national and international grassroots search and given the
unprecedented opportunity to showcase their originally produced Pilot
Programs directly to network and cable executives in a festival

Held in various locations in Manhattan's historic Greenwich Village,
the NYTVF will celebrate television as an institution and an art form,
from its distinguished history with New York City to its role in
contemporary society. In addition to the competitions, the festival
will honor television's rich heritage with classic screenings, panel
discussions, and interactive events paying tribute to the industry and
its impact on American culture.
