The Web Television & Film Festival [WTF-F], is founded by independent film professionals, and focuses on independent artists from all over the world. WTF-F will showcase some of the finest short films and pilots in the web, television and film genres. We want to celebrate the amount of work put into each film. Therefore, the festival rules ensure that each movie is reviewed ethically and with all due care, respect and attention.
Networking and collaboration are the cornerstones of the independent artist's creative process, and their work will meet a fun, engaged and tuned-in audience.
The WTF Festival is interested in building a passionate community of interest around independent content creators and the folks that love and appreciate that work.
Hosted at the historic Teaneck Cinemas, the festival will run screenings, followed by artists Q&A, pre-screening networking, a red carpet event, and a really fun after party.

Trophies will be given to Best Film, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Unproduced Screenplay.

  • We traveled to the Web Television & Film Festival from Toronto, Canada and had a blast! The theater was a hive of activity and the fest had the feeling of community, especially with all the local actors & indie filmmakers there. We screened our web series episode and got to share our experiences making it in a Q&A. We even gave a filmed interview on the red carpet! The organizers were very passionate about supporting us. Thank you!
