FYI, along with Realscreen Summit, has launched the FYI Development Lab, which will award up to 5 development deals of up to US $20,000 each for producers.
The Creative Brief outlining the type of programming FYI is looking for can be found on our website. Producers MUST submit a 2-5 minute video pitch and a series paper pitch, along with a 1-3 minute video sample of their company’s work.
In the spirit of bringing in new creative partners to create content for FYI, only producers or companies who have yet to have a commissioned pilot or series with FYI will be eligible.
Five (5) winners will be selected and then revealed during a special session at the Realscreen Summit on Monday, February 1, 2016.
The contest is open to registered delegates to the Realscreen Summit, who are permanent legal residents of the U.S. and are 18 years or older. Full contest rules can be downloaded here.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, January 8, 2016 at 5:00pm ET. Submit here.
