The DC Web and Digital Media Festival highlights the best of the web. The festival goes beyond web series to include various forms of digital media, such as Short Films, Screenwriting, and Game/App development. The MISSION of this festival is to Entertain, Educate, and Promote these new and innovative art forms.

At the DC Web Fest, we highlight the best of the indie spirit in digital content (series/games/VR/AR/apps/writing/shorts/trailers/music videos/etc...) We're a fun bunch, at the forefront of emerging art and technology, with a focus on policy and IP implications. I would love to chat about potential programming & partnering options for our international audiences.

At The DC Web Fest, we strongly believe in STEAM, along with STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, ART, & Math.
