The Tenth Annual NYC Web Fest (NYCWF) has set the stage for a remarkable celebration of digital storytelling as it unveils its Official Selections. This milestone event, showcasing an eclectic mix of web series, pilot episodes, and short films from across the globe, will take place from November 10, 2023, to November 12, 2023. It marks a significant return to the festival’s roots in New York City, a homecoming that’s been long-awaited since 2019.

In a world where digital content has become a driving force, NYCWF stands as a pioneer, celebrating a decade of innovation and creativity. While the last few years have certainly posed challenges, the heart of independent filmmaking still beats strong.

Founder Lauren Atkins expressed her excitement, stating, “I cannot describe how excited I am for NYC Web Fest to return home to New York City. Even with a pandemic, rising costs, union strikes, and more, there is a pulse to New York City, and the spirit of independent film remains alive and well.”

The year 2023 promises to be a grand celebration, both of new content and a reflection on the past 10 years of groundbreaking digital storytelling. NYCWF has recently unveiled its distinguished jury for 2023, including the notable addition of British filmmaker Adjani Salmon, known for his web series “Dreaming Whilst Black”, which screened at the 5th Annual NYCWF in 2018 and has since made waves with deals from the BBC and A24 in the United States.

Joining Salmon are esteemed figures from the entertainment industry: actress & filmmaker Julie Cavaliere, writer Judith Davis, filmmaker & intimacy coach Jamie Monahan, comedian & filmmaker Dan Perlman, actor Tshepo Ramasia, and filmmaker Heidy Torres.
