NewTeeVee returns to New York City this fall for a special edition of our Pier Screenings series, and we're co-hosting with NY Video 2.0.

>> THEME <<
In honor of Advertising Week, this month's theme is VIRAL ADS, by which we mean anything that was made with the intention of getting a big online audience and selling a product. In a departure from past events, we will be choosing the shorts to be shown the event with the help of analytics firm Visible Measures, which keeps track of the popularity of both online ads themselves as well as the parodies and take-offs of them made by fans. The live screening event will be held in New York City on September 23, 2008 from 8:30 - 10:30 PM.

>> What are NewTeeVee Pier Screenings? <<
The NewTeeVee Pier Screenings, a series of four summer events, bring together content creators and online video aficionados in a casual setting. These events are live tests of how well online video survives the move from the PC to the gigantic screen, accompanied by entertaining commentary from our judges and informative talks by relevant, successful online video entrepreneurs. Past themes included episodic content, parody, product placement and user-generated advertising, citizen news, pilots, and animation.

>> What is NewTeeVee? <<
NewTeeVee is the leading chronicler of the reinvention of television. The site describes and analyzes the spreading phenomenon of online video, including how high-quality digital video will be produced, distributed and monetized across the web. The Pier Screenings summer series showcase the best of online video in a casual setting. If you're interested delving deeper into the business and technology sides of the sector, you should attend our NewTeeVee Live conference on November 13, 2008 in San Francisco.

We will provide some movie theater fare. (Think popcorn, beer and candy.)
