Message From Our Founder

Welcome to Miami Web Fest 2018, the "film" festival for web series! This year we have Pitch Fest (creators pitch to TV executives), an Entertainment Law panel, Celebrity Guests, Exclusive Industry Parties, and an unforgettable Awards Ceremony!

We are very excited to have Hollywood director Bobby Roth (Prison Break, Hawaii Five-O, MacGyver) who will give his world-famous masterclass "A Director Prepares", offering filmmakers a unique look into how big-budget TV shows are made and tips for how to excel in the craft.

Finally, as an added bonus, we will open submissions for the 2019 season on February 1st, 2018.  Any submission received between February 1st and April 1st will automatically qualify to compete in the trailer competition by submitting at no charge!  

We can’t wait to see you all this year!!  Please email us with your questions to info@miamiwebfest.com 

Kind regards,
