Thank you for your amazing support and interest for Seoul Webfest (aka KWEBFEST).
Because of you, Seoul Webfest was a huge success again!
Now we look to 2020 and the 6th Seoul Webfest!

2020 Seoul Webfest is now taking submissions for web series from all over the world.

Seoul Webfest in South Korea is the very first web series festival in Korea & Northeast Asia and the only web fest in Asia.
We showed 250 web series in 2019 and we will show more series in 2020.

Our Festival partners are over 35 webfests in the world!

Our goals for 2020 are to expand the festival so it can become a viable provider of quality content on an international scale. Our intention is to create a place that nurtures and cultivates upcoming creators. We invite you to a new paradigm of festival where you can take part in screenings, network parties, a redcarpet, an award show, Fam tour and gain access to distributors, branded companies, filmmakers, writers, producers, funding etc.

Plus, we had an after-festival outing FAM Tour for 2 Days and 1 Nights in a famous Yeosu City, all for free accommodations! We will have another beautiful city for this year again!!!

    Had such a fun time in Seoul, and met some really amazing filmmakers. The trip to Yeosu was really special.

    Had a fantastic time at this festival! We really appreciated the lengths that the festival staff went to in order to make us feel welcome, and the general atmosphere of participants was generous and supportive. We can't wait to come back!

    What an incredible experience! I fell madly in love with Seoul itself the second I stepped off the plane, and the festival only made it better. The team over at Seoul Webfest are super hospitable, enthusiastic, and just all around really genuine people. They really went above and beyond for us, arranging a tour of Lotte World Tower for the creators and a trip to Yeosu to experience South Korean culture beyond the city (I wasn't able to attend the latter as I had to head to Tokyo, but I hear it was amazing). The awards ceremony was such a beautiful event complete with K-pop performances and a very enthusiastic Korean audience. Can't wait to go back!
