About RealtopiaTV™ Festival 2015:
RealtopiaTV™ was created to connect non-scripted (“reality”) television fans with the celebrities they admire and are inspired by. Part festival, part convention, RealtopiaTV™ is the largest collection of reality fans and reality television stars in one space for one whole weekend. The mission is to celebrate people and their stories that are positive, uplifting, and encouraging. RealtopiaTV™ will feature celebrities whose stories, journeys on their show, authenticity and/or the use of their celebrity after their time on their show is inspiring to their fans. This festival provides a place for fans to have the opportunity to really connect and get inspired.
“Reality television is so pervasive in our culture today. Because of its influence, it is an incredible platform to educate, to inspire and to encourage,” said RealtopiaTV™ founder Melody Orrantia. “Frankly, I don’t think that side of reality television has received enough attention. There are so many people who have tremendous stories to share and can illicit change based on the good work or character they show while on TV. It’s time that we celebrate them and allow their fans genuine access to them.”
The festival kicks off Friday May 29th at Will Rogers Auditorium with a celebrity-filled red carpet and musical performances by Mark Ballas, Hayley Orrantia and John Lindahl. Over the course of three days, festival attendees will have the opportunity to:
