The 3rd Philly TV Festival will be held from 23rd - 25th February 2024 at Venice Island Performing Arts Theatre in Manayunk between 9am-5pm daily. Attendance is free to the public. We will be screening works from all our semi-finalists and offering a presentation on story structure. For more information about the venue and directions go to their website

The Philly TV Festival was created to help independent producers of television, internet media, and other short-form films to hone their talents, improve their program development and distribution processes, and create an environment to foster creativity and ideas. We showcase individuals and their ideas and help them to get their work recognized and share their short form films and shows on the airwaves. The inaugural Philly TV Festival was a success on the weekend of Nov. 14th and 15th, 2014 and we are going to expand and improve on our event for this upcoming Philly TV Festival 2023 after a long hiatus. Creators involved in making short form media, like projects made for television and the internet, gained benefit from our event. We had speakers and panels designed to help our media makers improve their skill set and they got what we promised them! They gained understanding of the market and were able to network with other media artists like themselves. Tune into Comcast channel 66 or Verizon 29/30 in the Philadelphia market to see episodes from our last festival.

Come see some great independent short form works of film and meet actors, actresses, directors, producers, sound people, graphics creators, and more at this amazing event.
