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.

    I cannot emphasize this enough, this is the BEST virtual film festival I have been to yet. Other festivals have tried to make a comprehensive set up, but none like the DC Web Fest. They really went above and beyond to make sure that filmmakers get all the benefits of an in-person festival without actually having to be in-person, I can only imagine how fantastic this even will be when it's held in-person again. The communication was excellent, they had great PR and really made me feel like I was honored and appreciated as a filmmaker. I have been singing praises about this festival to everyone I know and will continue to do so. Thank you so much DC WebFest!

    DC Web Fest provides what a creator like me wants out of a festival experience: smart discussions, well-run workshops, and wonderfully curated/moderated screenings. The web fest scene is a supportive community, and it's because of festivals like DC Web Fest that the community thrives. Thank you, DC Web Fest!

  • Otessa and the DC Web Fest team work hard to promote indie filmmaking and connect creators with each other. The logline workshop in particular was both inspiring and motivating. We loved participating in the 10th Annual event!
