The International Online Web Fest is a seasonal international online event of short films UNDER 15 MINUTES not available online yet and web series with at least 1 webisode under 15 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 #IntWebFest2017 and join our network on Twitter and Facebook.

    Great festival with a lot of variety in the content chosen. My only suggestion would be improving your website and communication in future. We were notified that we were nominated for an award but I had to do a lot of digging through your website and Facebook Page to actually find out what category it was for and even then it didn't say who specifically was nominated.
    Huge appreciation for what you do though and thank you for the opportunity for showcasing our work! :)
