This year, TFI Network, presented by AT&T, will move online from April 27 through May 1. Prior to TFI Network, filmmakers will attend 'Prep Week' from April 21 through April 23, which includes online pitch training sessions with mentors. This year’s 43 winners include scripted projects, documentaries and interactive projects.”
