da | Mag 31, 2020 | Webfest

It’s time for Die Seriale 2020. Germany’s oldest festival for short-form and innovative web series will be held for the sixth time in a row. However, this edition will be different “due to the repercussions of the Corona-pandemic we had to change the dimensions of the festival. Instead of the usual physical form, the Seriale 2020 will be organized as an extensive online event. Since the founding in 2015, we’ve been bringing web-series to the big screen. Now we’re showing them on the medium that they are originally made for: the Internet through mobile devises”, explains festival director Csongor Dobrotka.

DIE SERIALE 2020 WILL SHOW WEB SERIES AND PILOTS THROUGH THE ONLINE CINEMA VIDEMIC

Due to the pandemic situation, Die Seriale 2020 – as well as some other festivals – had to rethink its nature and become an online digital event. On one hand this make less easier the networking between creators, but on the other hand it creates the condition for bringing web series back to the Internet medium and the wonderful work done by the talented creators will be available to an even wider audience this year.
