Miami Web Fest is the Film Festival for Web Series; a 4-day festival showcasing the hottest new web series content from around the world. The event is designed to create a work-play environment, attracting Miami’s vast and multicultural community of arts enthusiasts. For attendees, Miami Web Fest is a “window into the future” of new media, allowing the general public to see independently produced shows before they are discovered by big television networks and media entities such as Netflix. It’s also a chance to party and mingle with the stars of the New Digital Age at some of the most exclusive hotspots in Miami!

Creating web series allows independent filmmakers to have more control over their own ability to gain followers and worldwide recognition. Miami Web Fest allows these unconventional filmmakers to experience the conventional benefits of an international film festival, including theater screenings, exclusive parties, and an elaborate Awards Ceremony. Several MIAMI WEB FEST winners have experienced professional success beyond the festival, including distribution on networks like Netflix and Amazon.

    The Miami Web Fest is definitely the most inclusive and diverse web festival I've ever been to, with a genuine and heartfelt interest in helping independent creators and actors find opportunity through their craft. The pitch contest, the monologue competition, the legal panel, and the special guests showed a real devotion to creating unique and tangible experiences for everyone in the room.

    I do think that with more volunteers and technical preparations, some of the screenings would have gone more smoothly and made had a greater impact as a result. But I really appreciated that Bryan is a very hands-on director and went the extra mile to make sure we all felt welcome in Miami.

    Thanks, Miami Web Fest!

    Miami Web Festival is going from strength to strength. In it's 3rd year, it continues to grow, expand and excite. Inclusive of all types of web series, and a great place to network. Proud to say that I am a Miami Web Fest award winner. One of the best web series festivals, and a wonderful location. Who can say no to Miami? Say "Yes", do yourself a favor, and attend.
