WHY WE WEBFEST

To Recognize Excellence

Through our screening series and award ceremony, BKWF celebrates original episodic content that does not fit into the traditional categories of ‘film’ and TV,’ while acknowledging that the line between formats has become increasingly blurry. We strive to award innovation and encourage excellence in the field, while arming our content creators with strategies for distributing, monetizing and promoting their work to the widest possible audience: the world wide web.

To Develop Careers

Part festival, part conference, BKWF seeks to share information, resources and connections with our creators.

  • Leave the content creator vacuum
  • Meet your next collaborators
  • Get information and resources
  • Get your work the attention it deserves

To Expand Representation

BKWF is presented in part by The New Hollywood, a 501c3 non-profit committed to supporting women and minority voices in entertainment. In our programming, we strive to showcase underrepresented voices tackling issues of gender, sexual orientation and race.

  • Brooklyn Web Fest was a fantastic experience for us

    "Brooklyn Web Fest was a fantastic experience for us and a great place to debut 47 Secrets to A Younger You. We were inspired by the level of film-making there and honored to be included. Everyone (from fellow series creators, to the panel members, to writers for web series oriented sites) were so generous with their knowledge and experience. We are still in touch with a large number of the colleagues we met, and expect to be far into the future!" - 47 SECRETS TO A YOUNGER YOU
