    Seoul Webfest 서울웹페스트 truly did fill my soul! I'm incredibly grateful for the opportunity to share this experience with super talented filmmakers, amazing festival directors & staff, and the beautiful Korean people, who opened their hearts to all of us! I'm still basking in the afterglow of this festival, the awards show, the vibrant city, the beautiful country-side, and the most amazing Seoul FAMtour ever! I LOVE all my new friends <3
    Thank you, Young Man Kang (Founder & Executive Director), Bang Hyeongrin (Chairman), Melodie Everson, Anna Ward, Peter Kyuha Cho, and the entire Seoul Webfest Team for making this event so special! This experience continues to live in my heart.

  • Our show has been in this festival 3 times and I have to say this year was special. We met lots of new friends and reconnected with many old friends including Young Man Kang, Anna Ward and Melodie Everson who help run the festival. The facilities are top rate, there were great places to eat nearby and the networking was fantastic. The award show is in English and Korean as are most of the panels and workshops. Korea is chock full of web series that we rarely get to see. And Young Man does a very good job of balancing the fest with local and international show. You really need to enter this fest and if you get in, you owe it to yourself to attend. You won't be disappointed.

    Can’t say enough great things about this festival. From the moment you are announced as an Official Selection, you get clear and courteous communication about next steps. The festival itself gives you a VIP feeling throughout. And after the festival, you get a special tour of historic Korea towns. It’s truly an incredible experience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • It was a huge honor and privilege to be a part of this festival with so many exciting projects! Was unfortunately unable to attend the amazing event. Hoping to submit again and get the opportunity to see it in person.
