Pilot Light TV Festival 2016

The first edition of the Pilot Light TV Festival arrives at HOME in May. While TV is a major part of pop culture, it’s typically watched alone. Pilot Light turns that idea on its head with a totally new, communal TV experience. This four-day event features exclusive screenings and Q&A panels based around the best past, present and future TV and web TV series.

Pilot Light is the perfect opportunity for TV fans and industry members alike to celebrate the TV they love so much, and discover new talent from the world of independent TV and web series production.
