Revry Presents 3rd Annual Out Web Fest (OWF) May 18-20 celebrating independent LGBTQ digital storytelling. Buffer Festival LA, YouTube Space LA and the London Hotel are partnering to celebrate the queer web festival.
The three day festivities will include industry speaker panel, parties, screenings, digital pitchfests and the Revry Visibility Awards! OWF is the must attend event for creators and fans who want to support diversity in entertainment with established and new storytellers. YouTube Space LA on May 18th will host the opening night event and all other festivities will be at the London Hotel. The closing night awards will include prizes like free sound stage rentals courtesy of Shamrock Studios, Revry Development and Distribution deals, as well as an Audience Award with automatic entry into Rio Web Fest including travel and accommodations to beautiful Rio de Janeiro.
This year OWF is partnering with the New Zealand Web Fest, International Online Web Fest and Buffer Festival for their first Buffer Festival LA on May 17th (including Dodie Clark, Louis Cole, Matthew Santoro, Mikey Murphy & Sabrina Cruz). “We’re incredibly excited to join forces with Revry’s OWF in the very first Buffer Festival LA. Revry’s OWF has been a leader in promoting diversity through elevated content and stories about real people and real circumstances, something Buffer Festival is passionate about as we make our expansion across North America,” shares Scott Benzie, CEO of Buffer Festival.
A discounted ticket for both festivals can be purchased at: https://www.showpass.com/buffer-festival-la-combo-pack/ (Note: The OWF ticket will be a discounted optional add-on once the Buffer Festival LA customer gets to check-out.)
“OWF has made a mark in the world of content creation in highlighting unique, groundbreaking, and sometimes subversive content that is too often overlooked by the mainstream festivals,” says Revry CEO, Damian Pelliccione. “In the 21st Century, short-form content leads as the hottest and fastest growing category in digital entertainment and OWF creates the perfect forum to share multiple perspectives of queer culture that makes our stories some of the most innovative, ground-breaking and unique in the world.”

About OWF (Out Web Fest)
OWF is the world’s only digital festival dedicated to celebrating web series, short films and music videos by and for the global queer community. OWF’s mission is to provide the opportunity for all queer content creators to connect with the global community and celebrate the progressive evolution of LGBTQ+ entertainment. OWF breaks the mold of other festivals by giving prominence and a voice to the honest and unfiltered digital short-form storytelling that does not rely on access to resources, lofty budgets, or elite “movers and shakers” in the industry.
In the 21st Century short-form content leads as the hottest and fastest growing category in digital entertainment and we believe it is the perfect forum to share multiple perspectives of queer culture that make our stories some of the most innovative, ground-breaking, and unique in the world. OWF introduces international and local digital content creators, producers, and fans to inclusive programming that acknowledges the cultural significance of this revolutionary intersection of medium and storytelling.
This festival will feature screenings, panels with industry experts, and a pitchfest which will allow creators a chance to speak one on one with working industry professionals. The festival will conclude with an awards ceremony and closing night party. For more information, please visit http://www.outwebfest.com/

International Online Web Fest
IOWF – The International Online Web Fest is a seasonal online event which specifically helps independent filmmakers to raise their visibility through the web. We do so by creating and taking care of your communication on line and especially on social media channels.
Rio WebFest had its inaugural edition held in 2015 in Ação da Cidadania and Casa Porto, two cultural centers located in the Harbour Zone of Rio de Janeiro, where
185 submissions, 65 national and 120 international, competed for more than 30 awards. Headquartered in Cidade das Artes, the 2016 edition grew exponentially, lending to the event real notoriety. The 2017 edition made Rio WebFest one of the most important events of the category in the world, with more than 500 series submitted, of which 206 competed for 54 trophies, cash prizes, co-production contracts and three international trips.

New for 2018 are submission categories accepting 3D, AR, MR, and VR projects. #NZWF18 runs each November in Auckland, presenting a conference day of panel discussions and presentations, an awards ceremony, and two days of screenings.
