ABOUT ATX TELEVISION FESTIVAL

ATX's focus is the celebration of the television medium - looking back at its history, where it is now, and where it is headed. Our weekend consists of events in which attendees can interact with actors, writers, directors, creators, showrunners, music supervisors, casting directors and studio executives involved in all stages of bringing their favorite shows to the small screen. We have all the functionality of a traditional film festival - spotlighting classic shows, never-aired pilots, cancelled too soon series, cult favorites, current hits and premieres of new series. In addition, we feature episode screenings with Q&As with the cast and creators, panels focused on industry related topics, and parties, live music, meet-ups, social media events and "super-secret happy hours." ATX's goal is to serve both the community and industry professionals equally, by giving them the opportunity to discuss and celebrate all aspects of TV.
