The International Online Web Fest is a seasonal online event for short films UNDER 15 MINUTES not available online, web series with at least 1 webisode under 22 minutes, and for the first year, we also accept Feature Films under 120 minutes.
#IOWF is a festival which specifically helps independent filmmakers to raise their visibility through the web. We do so by creating and taking care of your communication on line.
Filmmakers competing in festivals that require they not to show their films online, they can submit their films and share the trailer, teaser or behind the scenes video. Judges will award the best films through private screenings.
Submit your film to #IntWebFest2018 and join our network on Twitter and Facebook.
