Melbourne WebFest 2020 Awards Winners

Screening 80 series and giving 25 awards, as well as a live pitch competition, this fest surveys the local and international web series landscape.

Does it even need to be said that Melbourne WebFest took place entirely online this year?

Now in its eighth year, the 2020 program for Australia’s international web series festival took place on 4 – 6 September. It transitioned, apparently seamlessly, to a live online event for the first time, including an in-conversation event with SBS On Demand, an industry workshop with Screen Australia, networking opportunities, and, arguably one of the most important events for Australian web series creators, the Pitch iview competition with ABC iview.
