Welcome to Miami Web Fest 2019, the "film" festival for web series!
***Those submitting for the 2019 event before April 1st will be automatically entered into our Trailer competition for 2018. That means that those submitting for the 2019 season may actually experience the festival two years in a row, once as an Official Selection in the Trailer Competition (April 2018) and again as an Official Selection in the Web Series competition (April 2019). Trailers will undergo the same rigorous screening process, so nothing is guaranteed, but early submissions will definitely be worthwhile!!***
BEST OF LUCK!!

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!
...plus prizes which may range in value from $100-700 (details released later)
