DOVER- Hollywood is moving east in the form of the country’s premiere festival for independently produced TV pilots, webseries, multimedia content, and films. Founded in Los Angeles in 2006, the Independent Television and Film Festival (ITVFest) brings the best of the world’s independent artists together with top entertainment industry professionals. Technologically savvy and forward thinking, ITVFest prides itself on being for and about the creators of quality content.

ITVFest is the place to jumpstart a career in television, new media, and film. Past ITVFest success stories include pilot scripts bought by NBC, FOX, Comedy Central, Sony, College Humor, and others; writers staffed on the Colbert Report; and talent signed by major Hollywood agencies such as UTA.

Past celebrity panelists include: Bob Odenkirk, the cast of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” Andy Richter, and producers and writers from major series such as “House,” “Reno 911,” “The Simpsons,” “My-So-Called Life,” and more.

Previously held in Los Angeles, ITVFest was seeking a more exclusive setting and landed in the quaint mountain towns of Dover and Wilmington. This location brings an entirely new East Coast audience into the fold. The combination of Hollywood talent and the gorgeous Vermont foliage is predicted to turn ITVFest into the Sundance of the East.

Festival dates are September 26 to 28. For videos, press, and information contact Philip Gilpin Jr. or visit www.itvfest.com.
