Sydney Web Fest, Sydney’s home for digital short-form storytelling, is back for its fourth edition in 2022!
Sydney Web Fest is Sydney’s international web series festival, and is making waves in the Australian web series scene. Sydney Web Fest is dedicated to the celebration of online content, and the talents of those who make it happen.
We’re excited to showcase hardworking creatives, and their web series work. SWF is committed to celebrating the creators of web series’, and in particular, the creative accomplishments of women – along with honouring diversity across all spectrums. No matter how you identify, we look forward to your submission.
2022 marks SWF’s fourth year, with the valued support from LA Web Fest, the eternally brilliant Michael Ajakwe, our partners Melbourne Web Fest, NZ Web Fest, Montreal Web Fest, New Jersey Web Fest, and other industry heavyweights. SWF will be packed with screenings, panels, networking opportunities, and our awards ceremony.
At this stage, due to the uncertainty of live events, the festival will be held online this year! Projects that are part of our Official Selection line up, will be available for one week prior, and one week after the festival’s conclusion!
The Sydney Web Fest team are excited to welcome you to the fourth Sydney Web Fest!
