WEBFEST BERLIN is one of the oldest web festivals in the world. It had its first edition in 2015 and now is in a top-10 of a web festival circuit as a prestigious award and estimated industry event. This year’s edition runs under the Red Carpet Studio ownership – the company is known for its now long-term promotion and developing activity of the web series and also as a founder of the first and the only one Russian web series festival REALIST WEB FEST. The head of the Red Carpet Studio, the producer Anton Kalinkin claims the main priority of WEBFEST BERLIN will be, as it always was, - the search for new and original web content from all over the world and the evolution of the festival as a co-production and creative collaborations hub.

    Great communication with the host and good possibilities to meet people, even if only online this year. Good choice for both awarded, and beginning series-makers. We hope to meet in person next time :)
