Catalyst Content Festival (formerly ITVFest) is an exciting industry marketplace for independently produced episodic programming.

Catalyst Stories is a year-round educational and professional development institute empowering creators to bring their narrative stories to fruition.

 

The rise of Indie TV over the last decade has led to the creation of a niche market of hundreds of high-quality television pilots and series that represent the next generation of showrunners and TV talent.

 

Our international community of writers, creators, directors, producers, actors, and executives are constantly creating and developing new content. Some of these shows have already streamed around the world on digital platforms, while others are never before seen programs that have only been viewed by our festival audience and executive friends.

 

We invite you to join us in discovering the world's best episodic shows and talent among the breathtaking foliage which allows everyone to relax, interact, and build genuine industry relationships.
