EXCLUSIVE: The Official Selections For The NYC Web Fest 2019 Has Been Announced Alongside A New Location And A New Sponsor

The sixth annual NYC Web Fest (NYCWF) is just months away, and today they announced their official selections. 82 digital series and short films from around the world, have been chosen. The NYCWF is set to take place on October 4-6, 2019. In addition to the announcement of the selections, they have also revealed a new partnership with Stonestreet Studios, who serves as the supporting sponsor and will host the festival at their theater within Manhattan’s Flatiron District.

“Stonestreet has been honored to have our films and pilots selected to take part in NYCWF for multiple years now, and we’re always blown away by the quality and elegance of the work that the fest curates. We are thrilled to house the event this year and to screen some fresh, exciting work in Stonestreet’s renovated theater,” says director/writer/producer and Stonestreet Co-Founder Alyssa Rallo Bennett.

Stonestreet Studios is an independent film studio in that produces socially provocative content from features to branded MicroMovies. It is the home of the unique immersive screen acting and production program of NYU Tisch Drama. Some notable graduates include recent Emmy Winner Rachel Brosnahan, actor Miles Teller, and Camila Mendes of Riverdale.

As revealed back in June, the NYCWF has been brought forward a month to October, which means the programming team had less time to sift through the hundreds of submissions and choose the official selections. “We received so much great content,” says founder Lauren Atkins. “With each year, the submissions get stronger and it becomes more difficult to choose who to screen. Nearly a third of the entries were from outside the United States.”

The jury line-up for the festival was announced two months ago, which will consist of nine industry professionals, including Carmilla star Natasha Negovanlis, National Lampoon president Evan Shapiro, and Insecure actor Alexander Hodge. An award-winning filmmaker will receive a prize-pack and a free one-year subscription from streaming service Mubi. The festival takes place Friday, October 4, to Sunday, October 6, tickets go on sale next week. For more information, go to the official NYC Web Fest site.
