Claire Taylor is the director of programming at SeriesFest, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the art of episodic storytelling. With year-round initiatives and professional development opportunities focused on diverse and under-served voices, education programs for students, and an annual festival, which gives emerging artists a platform and place for discovery, SeriesFest is where new voices and storytellers have found a home.
The award-winning festival, SeriesFest: Season 5, will take place in Denver, Colorado – the birthplace of cable television – June 21-26, 2019. With a musical performance and network premiere at the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre and six days of in-competition screenings, panels, and network sneak peeks, the annual festival showcases compelling and creative content while celebrating television history and engaging in meaningful dialogue about serialized storytelling.
