The Official Selections For The NYC Web Fest 2021 Has Been Announced Alongside A New Sponsored Collaboration And Media Partner

The eighth annual NYC Web Fest (NYCWF) is just months away, and today they announced their official selections. 56 digital web series and short films from around the world, have been chosen. The NYCWF is set to take place on November 12-14, 2021. In addition to the announcement of the selections, they have also revealed a new collaboration between supporting sponsor Spa Zuzu, and a media partnership with CherryPicks.

“We’re delighted to be working with the team at Spa Zuzu,” says NYCWF founder Lauren Atkins. After two difficult years, everyone could use some pampering. The spa is offering a 20% discount using the code NYCWF2021 on all services and is putting together a special “Red Carpet Ready” package for NYC Web Fest attendees.

CherryPicks is an entertainment and media site that champions movie reviews and original stories from female-identifying and non-binary writers. They offer a unique scoring system, the CherryScore, daily movie and TV recommendations, original editorial content, as well as digital and podcast offerings. CherryPicks will recommend some of the NYC Web Fest award-winning projects in their upcoming newsletters.

With COVID-19 affecting travel plans and possibly making it uncomfortable for filmmakers to travel to New York, especially with winter on its way – the festival plans to be a hybrid event, this November, by being both digital and in-person. “We plan on going ahead with our eighth Annual Event, whether it can be held in person or not,” says Lauren Atkins. “We had a very successful virtual festival in 2020 and will go that route if need be this November. Once again, we’re planning a stellar group of special guests and panels with entertainment professionals.”

The jury line-up for the festival was announced three months ago, which will consist of seven industry professionals. The festival takes place from Friday, November 12, to Sunday, November 14. For more information, go to the official NYC Web Fest site.
