We’re kicking it in to high gear here in Berlin and we are so excited about our 2016 program! We’re working hard to push the industry forward with our professional focus for our second edition, but, not to fear, we’ll continue with the ‘just for FUN’ initiatives as well. We can’t help it, that’s what Berlin is all about!
This month we’ve announced that we will be compiling the first digital series catalog in the world. Whether you are looking to sell your project, find the best content in the world, or simply put your company on the digital content map, the Webfest Berlin 2016 catalog is the place to be. Every submission to Webfest Berlin will automatically receive a basic listing and anyone may list their product or service, even if you do not submit.
Listings and tickets are available now. Check the links below for more details!
Another exciting addition to our 2016 edition is the One Day Agent Program. All series submitted to Webfest Berlin will have the opportunity to be chosen for representation at the festival by Webfest Berlin Board Member and Web Series Mag and Web Series World Cup founder, Joël Bassaget. Joël will choose 5-7 series from all submitted projects (not just official selections) to present to buyers in a special presentation at the festival. He will then be your agent for the day to network with potential buyers and get your project sold.
Regular submissions end on June 6 so get yours in today!
We’re also gearing up for the other digital series festivals in Germany this year. We have a new partner in the brand new Wendie Webfest Hamburg. Their early bird submissions close on May 27, so get yours in today! Also, I’m very honored to be judging Die Seriale in Giessen June 3-4. You can find the details of their program in the link below. I hope to see you there!
Now for the ‘just for FUN’ part! Submissions screenings start on June 9 at FilmBar – Boddinstrasse 10. Just like last year, we’ll be screening about an hour of submitted series every other Thursday night until the festival. Come out and have a beer and watch some series with us! More details are coming soon, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news.
I look forward to seeing you in Berlin soon!
