Due January 30th, 2018 - Are you an emerging filmmaker bursting with projects that you want to create? Have you ever watched something thinking that you could do it better? Now is your chance.

If you win, you have the opportunity to create exactly the series that you want to make. In fact, your web series just may be the perfect material to become a TV pilot. You won't find out until you try….

Filmaka members submit short written pitches only for the 3-5 minute pilot of the web series that you want to create. There will be two contests. In the first contest, you have a choice of two genres to select from and three weeks to submit your work. The topic for the second contest will be announced on January 31st.
