Following the success of last year’s event, a second annual UK Web Fest will be held on Saturday 29th October 2016 at Prince Charles Cinema, Leicester Square, London between 9AM-500PM with an awards ceremony and networking event after.
This is an opportunity for fans of exciting, independent digital content and media industry creatives to watch shortlisted web series. The awards will be presented in a number of different categories including Best Director, Best Production and Best UK Web Series, as well as the Industry Panel award of £500 to be announced on the day! The organsers also promise to give back 10% of submission fees to a much-needed school lacking film equipment.
Additionally there will be a panel session at 3pm with Darren Chadwick- Hussein the creator of the award winning web series The Bloody Mary Show and Judge Jett Garrison, Head of SixTwo Creative Production Company based in Los Angeles who will provide future forward thoughts on digital content creation, production and distribution.
Festival Founder and programmer Monica Y. Dee, of rKive Productions hopes the event will “inspire independent film makers to keep making web series because it is so ‘now’ and the possibilities with creating for the web is endless.”
Partnered by an impressive array of Web Fest experts including organisers from Web Fests in Dublin, New York, New Zealand and Berlin, this year’s UK Web Fest promises to be bigger and bolder; an evening of highly rewarding entertainment.
