Happy Thursday Stage 32!
The past couple of months have been a whirlwind here at Stage 32. In the wake of the SXSW live screening cancellation, we launched Stage 32 Screenings to ensure the affected filmmakers received the exposure and opportunities their hard work and talent deserves. Our initiative has since been covered by Deadline, Variety, CNN, and more. We are currently screening over 100 features, shorts, and episodic pilots from SXSW, Tribeca, BFI: Flare London LQBTIQ+ Film Festival, and Telluride Mountainfilm Documentary Festival to our network of producers, financiers, development executives, distributors, and more.
We are THRILLED to report that 2 films registered on Stage 32 Screenings have gotten distribution, 5 more films are in distribution negotiations and 50 short film filmmakers have been set up on meetings with industry professionals including managers, agents, and producers.
Now, we are beyond excited and honored to announce we are adding the cutting edge episodic festival, SeriesFest, to the Stage 32 Screenings lineup. In addition to offering official selections of the 2020 SeriesFest to screen content on Stage 32 Screenings, we are pleased to officially announce that Stage 32 is the official networking partner of SeriesFest: Season Six.
SeriesFest is a non-profit organization that champions and empowers artists at the forefront of episodic storytelling by providing year-round opportunities for creators and industry experts to connect, collaborate, and share stories, which inspire and impact global audiences.
For the past five years, SeriesFest has culminated each June in a highly-curated and celebrated Denver-based episodic festival and marketplace. This year, they are reimagining the festival experience. This year's virtual festival will include panel discussions, workshops, competition screenings, television premieres, and exclusive sneak peeks. Additionally, this year’s SeriesFest lineup will include Adrian Grenier, Chiké Okonkwo, Chris Parnell, Dylan Baker, Ilana Glazer, Joel McHale, Kel Mitchell, Michael Michelle, Adam Ray, Mindy Sterling, Paul Scheer, Thomas Lennon, Rhea Seehorn, Rick Overton, and more.
