We are extremely sad to announce, that after much deliberation, we must make the decision to postpone Season 5 of Pilot Light TV Festival, due to take place 7th-10th May 2020, as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 virus outbreak.

First and foremost, this is for the safety of the team, our volunteers, special guests and of course the audience. We pride ourselves on our communal TV experience and don’t want to put anyone at risk as a part of that.

Despite being a small team that makes a tight budget go very far, in this period of prolonged uncertainty, we cannot gamble the future of the festival based on what position our audiences and partners will be in by early May.

Our current plans are to proceed with Season 5 in some form around August.

Stay tuned to our social media channels in coming weeks as we still intend to announce our Web Series & TV Pilot competition line up; which will be screened in August.

In the meantime, we request that any spare money you may have been saving for the festival to be re-directed, via donation, to our venue partner HOME and their response fund. They are currently closed due to government advice and need support. More information can be found at

Stay safe, wash your hands, and see you at Season 5!

The Pilot Light TV Festival Team
