Brooklyn Web Fest is a festival that celebrates the best of web series. The fest, which was founded by award-winning web series creator and producer Sarah Jacobson, will take place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on October 5th.
The web fest 2023 is a celebration of the best in independent film, television, and digital media. It was founded by award-winning filmmaker and producer, Matt Mazany.
Williamson, Kit, writer, director, and star of LogoTV’s award-winning online series Eastsiders, has always been a proponent of cooperation and promoting the work of other artists. He thought it was time to start a web series festival in Brooklyn that is both a showcase for intriguing new digital series and a networking opportunity for filmmakers to share ideas after recently becoming bicoastal.
In an interview, Williamson said, “I believe what makes us different is that we’re approaching the web fest idea from the viewpoint of content producers.” “I want to give them the sort of experience I’d want to have, as well as have industry eyes on their work.”
Screenings, discussions, seminars, and mixers will take place throughout the course of the weekend at IFP’s DUMBO Made in NY Media Center. “It is my goal that everyone will leave the festival with more visibility and a clear route ahead for their ideas, as well as connections to help them realize their next great idea,” Williamson said.
