Australia’s International Web Series Festival

Melbourne WebFest is Australia’s international web series festival, working to honour innovative creators that are transforming the world of entertainment.

MWF was the fourth festival of its kind in the world, and remains the biggest celebration of web series in the Southern Hemisphere.

Digital series entertainment is growing rapidly and is fast rising to challenge traditional modes of producing, distributing and engaging with screen content. Innovative web series creators are a driving force in this storytelling evolution.

Melbourne WebFest is working to acknowledge digital screen producers and is creating a hub for networking and professional development in the heart of Melbourne. It is also an opportunity for the public to experience the best in digital series entertainment from around the globe. The festival includes screenings, keynotes, discussion panels, masterclasses, and, a live pitching competition.

Mashed Up: The web series

A behind the scenes look at the MWF internship.

In our fifth anniversary year, we have documented the experience of being a festival intern. When the simple task of creating the annual mash up of Official Selection series go awry, can this year’s AV interns pull it together in time for the festival? They say being an intern can be hard but being a Melbourne WebFest intern might just be deadly.
Produced by and starring the Melbourne WebFest team.
