ATX Festival, the first festival devoted to Television’s history and future, will commence on Friday, June 1st 2012 in Austin, TX. ATX will function like a traditional film festival with premieres of new series, current hits & cult favorites and spotlights of unaired pilots, series that were cancelled before their time and classic shows. ATX will also offer access to the industry’s leading professionals with cast and creator Q&As and panels focusing on innovation in both production and content delivery. Ultimately, ATX has the goal of serving both the community and industry professionals by giving them the opportunity to celebrate and discuss all aspects of TV’s past, present & future.

ATX Festival is the brainchild of Caitlin McFarland and Emily Gipson who have over a decade of experience working in the film and television industry. McFarland has experience on the production side, working for directors Betty Thomas, Nora Ephron, and Mira Nair. In addition, she has been involved on the festival and filmmaker sides of renowned festivals like Sundance, Tribeca, and Doha Tribeca. Emily Gipson has spent her years in the industry working on the studio and network side for Fox, TLC, Discovery, and Fox TV Studios. McFarland and Gipson have enlisted the help of a distinguished advisory board for ATX Festival consisting of directors, writers, producers, as well as festival sponsors.
