All these were judged (by Julie Kalceff, Andre Des Rochers, Darren Chadwick-Hussein Jett Garrison and Benjamin Johns) on “the narrative quality, on the production values and also on “the independent nature of the production“.
Moreover «UK Web Fest is “unique”, because we are different; there is a £500 cash prize to encourage the winners to go out there and make another episode. We also give back 10% of submission fees to a school that might need extra film equipment in their film department». This is really interesting, because there are few festivals that actually give a cash prize! Monica feels that this money can be a big help to film makers, who need a boost of encouragement and the winners are well deserved of it.
Monica defined the UK Web Fest as «“personable”, because we are a boutique feel web fest and very family orientated. We consider all our officially selected web series like our own children, we want to see them grow and become successful». From this answer comes out the soul that sits this web fest slightly apart from others: helping as much as possible, with every effort, the creators, and encouraging them to go ahead and produce other web series.
The UK Web Fest team is already thinking of the next edition and «we cannot wait to make the next experience bigger and better for the film makers and guests! We have no doubt that we will receive high end submissions and we look forward to it once again». Well, all we can do is sit tight and get ready for the next UK web fest, that will be on the 21st October 2017. «It may be in another city in the UK, but you can keep up to date with the new time and venues at www.ukwebfest.com which will soon be announced». So, stay tuned folks!
