UK Web Series Film Festival 2017

Following the success of last year’s event, the third annual UK Web Fest will be held on Saturday 21st October 2017 at the exclusive members establishment, Soho House Cinema, 76 Dean Street, London W1D 3SQ from 10AM-530PM with an awards ceremony and networking event after.

This is an opportunity for fans of exciting, independent digital content and media industry creatives to watch shortlisted web series. The awards will be presented in a number of different categories including Best Director, Best Production, Best International and Best UK Web Series, as well as the Industry Panel award of £500, which was won by Sci Fi web series Element 186. The orgainsers also promise to give back 10% of submission fees to a much-needed school lacking film equipment.

Additionally there will be a panel session at 3pm with industry panel speakers to be announced nearer the time. Last year Darren Chadwick- Hussein the creator of the award winning web series ‘The Bloody Mary Show’ and Judge Jett Garrison Head of Six Two Creative Production Company based in Los Angeles provided the interesting topics that were discussed on digital content creation, production and distribution.

Festival Founder and programmer Monica Y. Dee, of rKive Productions hopes the event will “inspire independent film makers to keep making web series because it is so ‘now’ and the possibilities with creating for the web is endless. When looking to submit my own web series production in the UK where I learnt my craft I was disappointed to only find one web fest here therefore I decided to set up another festival, not to be in competition but to create another platform for would be film makers like myself in one of the most recognisable countries the world knows. There is so much talent here and international filmmakers have embraced the festival and also want to show their work here.”

A new Partner for next year has entered the arena and any official selections or award-winning web series will automatically be given pride of place on a new web series app streaming only web series that will be announced in the new year.
