Welcome to the UK Offline Web Fest!
We are proud to announce that we are sponsored by "I Love WebSeries" and we are an IMDb Qualified event!
We are officially recognized by the "International Online Web Fest" as UK Official Provider. Selected shorts will qualify for IOWF® considerations.
In our last years, we received more than 500 submissions with over a dozen of Universities and Film-Schools participating in our web festival. We strive to bring filmmakers from all over the UK under one spotlight on the world stage. We continue to represent filmmakers from all levels and experiences.
UKOWF is based in London, with our jury located around the world including United Kingdom, France, Italy, and the USA. All the short films and series will go through a reviewable process by our highly experienced juries, who will go through an evaluation process and select the films.
We welcome submissions from a range of genres including short films, documentaries, animations, and web series.
Our objective is to provide support for film-makers through reviewing, judging, marketing, and distribution networking. With our live screenings at Camden Town, we aim to showcase and promote the work of filmmakers. We believe our Web Fest will give filmmakers a chance to showcase their work to a very wide range of audiences. And from this year, for the first time, we will host an "Out of Competition" session to showcase the greatest filmmakers projects from many different parts of the world.
We are very excited to review your project and observe the detailed creativity of your work from anywhere in the world!
