Minnesota WebFest is the first film festival in the Midwest dedicated to the emerging web series format and a member of the Web Series World Cup. Since our founding, our mission has expanded to include many different forms of web entertainment, including:
* Web Series
* TikToks and Reels
We take immense pride in championing diverse human voices and perspectives.
Now entering our sixth year, we are joining forces with two other industry film festivals–Catalyst Stories and the Duluth Superior Film Festival–to bring a week of networking, education, and entertainment extending from the web series to film and independent television. The Minnesota WebFest components takes place Monday-Wednesday with the goal of bringing the best web entertainment in the world to Minnesota and showcase top Minnesota talent to the world. Our mission is to identify high quality web entertainment, to promote the works of the creators, and to highlight the diverse voices that this medium empowers.
Throughout the festival you will be treated to screenings on state of the art theater equipment, networking opportunities, educational talks, and panels from web series experts around the world. Network with other creators and industry experts in downtown Duluth, Minnesota. Our Awards Ceremony completes the event, where we hand out our awards, decided by an independent jury panel.
And of course, we are by no means all work and no play! There are lots of fun and unique events you can enjoy on the North Shore of Lake Superior!
A key part of our mission is bringing public exposure to these amazing works. As such, each year we strive to keep our event free and open to both creators and the public.
