Wendie Webfest Hamburg as the 2nd Webfest in Germany honors the strong brand of being a Webfest while having its own features and focus. The festival celebrates the independent series culture and DIY ethos of filmmakers. Wendie appreciates a passionately created lovechild more than silky perfect products that are made to sell: Go for clever storytelling and an original setting and you will take the hanseatic Webfest's heart by storm! Exchange and networking between filmmakers and audience as well as creators among themselves is an elementary part of this years edition.


Das Wendie Webfest Hamburg als 2. Webfest Deutschlands feiert sowohl die nationale als auch internationale Web/Indieserienszene, möchte diese würdig präsentieren und zum Dialog anregen. Besonders viel Wert legt das Wendie dabei auf Do-It-Yourself-Ethos der Filmemacher: Ausgefuchstes Storytelling geht über reich geförderte Weltraumschlachten, Beulen in der Präsentation über ein aalglatt stromlinienförmiges Produkt. Dieses Festival sucht Kinder der Leidenschaft und nicht mit wirtschaftlichem Kalkül produzierte Piloten.

Es sollen Kreateure und Publikum in Dialog treten, die Filmemacher sich untereinander austauschen und das Netzwerken nicht zu kurz kommen - zum Beispiel bei einem Kaltgetränk an der Südelbe, sofern es das milde September-Wetter in Hamburg hergibt.

    Loved Wendie!! Some of the nicest programmers I've met yet. Great to deal with from beginning to end, and was really impressed with their taste in selections. I will definitely be applying here again!
