Baltimore's first New Media Web Fest #BNMWEBFEST
A festival that celebrates the very best of New Media Content!

All web series, VR content, Youtube Channels, and music videos will be promoted on our official site, and through-out the BNM Web Fest social media accounts. Each web series will be featured in the BNM Web Fest booklet that will be given out at the festival. The "Selected" projects will get a full page in our booklet, the ones that don't get selected will get 1/2 of a page - but all will be featured.

The top "selected" projects will be screened and presented with awards during an awards ceremony.

Celebrity and Industry Professionals will help to judge the submissions.

    Great film selections. Great panels. Festival directors always available. A lot packed into the two days, and we probably got to meet and talk to all filmmakers present (and there were a lot of filmmakers present, which is also nice.) Thanks BNM Web Fest!
