NYC Web Fest Announces Selections and Venue for Third Year (Exclusive List)

Colin Quinn and Lewis Black both debuted work at the fledgling festival last year.

The 3rd Annual NYC Web Fest (NYCWF) announced its official selections today – a wide variety of web series that span the globe. The PIT Loft on West 29th Street will host the three-day festival. Of the 96 series highlighted, nearly half are from the tri-state area, with an impressive international showing as well.

Now in its third year, NYCWF is following a very successful second edition. 2015 highlights included the world premiere of “The Mentors” starring Lewis Black, the festival premieres of Colin Quinn’s “Cop Show,” and Refinery 29’s “The Queens of Kings.” This year features shows with appearances by comedians Judy Gold and Sherrod Small, as well as “The Blacklist” actress Erika Robel.

The NYC Web Fest brings together a multifaceted diverse group of people from around the world to showcase the best of the web. Born in Cape Town and raised in Toronto, Lauren Atkins founded NYCWF in 2014, after recognizing there were several festivals showcasing digital series on the west coast, but nothing in New York. “Our goal is to make this festival the premier home for digital producers on an international level. An organic space where creators can showcase their talent, network with other artists, and learn from industry insiders.” Said Atkins.

“Judging by the enthusiasm of everyone who attended, I expect NYC Web Fest will continue to grow in size and relevance in the industry,” said “Cop Show” executive producer, Morris S. Levy.
