Miami Web Fest
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. This year, our judging panel includes executives HBO, AMC, NBC and other networks, poised to create tangible opportunities for independent filmmakers to move to the next level!
