We are proud to announce that we are sponsored by "I Love WebSeries" and we are an IMDb Qualified event!

The "International Online Web Fest" officially recognizes us as a UK Official Provider. Selected shorts and web series will qualify for IOWF® considerations to be invited to Milan (Italy).

In our last years, we received more than 600 submissions with over a dozen of Universities and Film-Schools participating in our web festival.
Two of our winning-award actresses: Jordan Baker and Sophia Myles won "International Online Web Fest", too. 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 has got jury located around the world including the United Kingdom, USA, Canada, and Italy. 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.

Projects that receive top marks from our judges are official selections of the festival. The programming committee then will select a smaller selection of films to screen online at the festival from the official selection. All official selections are eligible to win an award at the award ceremony concluding the festival.
To be eligible for the 2024 competition, entries must have been completed between February 28, 2023, and the festival date for the Festival Premieres. Only projects from all over the UK are eligible. Submissions must be made in the UK to qualify.

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.
Our judges are actively looking to acquire shorts, features, and series to broadcast all over the world.
We are very excited to review your project and observe the detailed creativity of your work from anywhere in the UK!
