Metro TV is a live television broadcast of the best and worst of local independent shorts, shown on Edmonton's largest closed-circuit flatscreen TV - 429 inches!. Metro TV is also a chance for independent short filmmakers to get their work seen, get paid, win prizes, and be forced to make a second episode.
Loosely based on Channel101.com in LA, local producers, ranging in age from 9 to 99, submit their short pilots, and the audience (you!) act as studio executives, voting to decide if the pilots are renewed or cancelled. If the show gets renewed? The producers have to deliver Episode 2 in time for next month's screening. If the show gets cancelled?
They're free to try again. This is a no-rules, brilliant and horrific new media event, concert and board meeting. Hosted by Wes Borg, co-produced with Metro and FAVA.
