The ninth editions of the Web Series World Cup and the inaugural edition of the Audio Fiction World Cup are both off and running, and we're looking forward to seeing the early rankings.
The WSWC recently posted a list of the festivals
Congrats to all the shows nominated for the
Canadian Screen Awards, but special congrats to the shows we've had the pleasure of presenting at NZ Web Fest - Avocado Toast, Detention Adventure, Sloppy Jones, Tokens and Topline.
Even specialer congrats go to Detention Adventure (above), which achieved a whopping 15 nominations. Good luck to all the shows for the award ceremonies, which run in April.
Tokens was also among the winners at the recent Cusco Web Fest, taking away the Best International Series award. Sticking with Cusco, their direct selection from us, Taylor Nixon's Roadie, won Cusco's Best Pilot award.
Congrats, too, to Nir Berger, whose dramedy series Dead End won our Best Animated Show award in 2020. Season 2 of Nir's Dismissed has picked up a huge 16 nominations for the Israeli TV Academy Awards, after season 1 won 10 awards last year.
Coming in late March, the International Online Web Fest has named its finalists, with a few of our recent selections, nominees and winners in the mix. Good luck to Outtake's Block Watch and Kith & Kin, to Dating Unlocked, Frapuccino and NZ short film Ink and Gold.
Stareable has opened ticket sales for its LA edition, running 28-30 April. The current ticket price of $24 will get you a whole weekend's worth of goodness in LA, which could be the best offer you'll get this year.
If you’ve got a short that fits the theme – or can turn one around by the 10 March deadline – the government of Korea and Transparency International have a competition open ahead of the summit for democracy in Seoul next month.
Winners get a free trip to Korea!
