Her speech will be part of the culminating event of Miami Web Fest. Founded in 2014 and already considered a Top 5 web series festival globally, Miami Web Fest further distinguishes itself by adding a new film market to its robust 2022 lineup of screenings, niche panels, workshops, master classes, fireside chats and unforgettable Miami nightly parties – all carefully curated experiences, designed to showcase the best of Indie episodic content against the backdrop of Miami’s pulsating Food & Entertainment landscape.
A work-play environment, the annual event attracts an international audience to Miami’s vast, multicultural community of filmmakers and film enthusiasts. Miami Web Fest allows the general public to see independently produced shows before they are discovered by major television networks and media entities. 2022’s film market addition brings Film Distributors and Hollywood Executives from prestigious organizations, including Michelle Alban of Paramount, Erica Barrabi of Maverick Entertainment and others. The event is a refreshed “speed dating” face to face business opportunity for filmmakers. A number of Miami Web Fest alums have already found commercial success through distribution and acquisition deals.
This edition, Sept. 29 – Oct. 2, showcases both in-person local events and online experiences for worldwide audiences.
