DESCRIPTION

Black Web Fest 2017 is a festival where people from the African diaspora unite to discover online shorts, web series, new media, & web industry trends. With the entertainment industry moving to more streaming platforms, there's a vast amount of influencers, vloggers, & media makers making content for online platforms such as YouTube & Vimeo. The festival connects these creatives & media makers with opportunities to showcase their creative work. During the festival attendees will be able to screen web series & films created by Black media makers. The festival will also feature informative panels with industry professionals, media makers, & actors.

The themes for Black Web Fest 2017 are discovery, education, & technology. At our in-person event we have a full day of events that embody the core themes of Black Web Fest.
