Azureus Offers Independent Television Festival Content on Vuze24 May, 2007 By: Billy Gil
Azureus, a purveyor of long-form, high-quality video content via Vuze.com, will host content for the Independent Television Festival Inc. (ITVF).
Vuze will become home to the festival's online Webseries competition. The site will be the exclusive online submission point for all high-resolution (DVD/HD quality) video entries into the festival and an alternate submission point for ITVF's television pilot category (starting June 4). Vuze also will be the only submission point for the television pilot category after June 8.
Vuze submissions will be judged by both the Vuze community of users and a panel of industry experts. Winners will receive cash prizes and exposure to the television industry and Vuze's Internet audience, as the content will remain on Vuze after the competition.
Last year's audience favorite (“This Is My Friend”) at ITVF had its script commissioned by heads of NBC Development. ITVF is sponsored in part by Comcast.
