Miami Web Fest is the Film Festival for Web Series; a film 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. 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.

Additional prizes from our sponsors will be announced as the event approaches.

    I loved having my series, The Luxury Rental, in this festival. It really is the place to be for Web-Series! The festival venue was so awesome, right in the middle of South Beach. They put together great panels, and the movie theatre where the screenings were was just thebomb.com. (Yes I said it). One of the best movie theatres ever. Definitely was some tough competition at this festival.! Bryan and his team put on a great 2022 festival.!

    What a fantastic festival! Although it had to be organised twice (due to the hurricane hitting Florida at the time when the festival was initially supposed to take place), this did not affect the quality of the festival. Great panels where we learnt a lot from industry professionals, the best cinema to watch our productions in and a spectacular awards gala! Thank you so much Bryan and the organisers, this was one of the best festivals we ever attended and we recommend it to everyone!
