​Founder’s Greeting
Young Man Kang ㅣ Founder & Executive Director

Thank you for your amazing support and interest for Seoul Webfest (aka KWEBFEST).
2021 marks the 7th webfest!  In 2021 submissions were accepted for web series, short form, and shorts from all over the world.

Kwebfest in South Korea in 2015 was the very first web series festival in Korea & Asia. Each year we’ve shown about 200 ~ 250 web series, short form and shorts. Our Festival partners include over 35 webfests from around the world!

The worldwide pandemic has for the second year forced the Seoul Webfest to be held virtually. Known in the world of webfests to be one of the top festivals to attend, we sorely miss the gathering of creators here in South Korea. Always seeking to find creative solutions, we have joined with FILMOCRACY this year to allow our submissions to be viewed around the world. In addition, the Seoul Webfest will still be able to be the place were creators can join together to support one another and to celebrate each other’s success. We invite you to a new paradigm of festival where you can take part in screenings, networking events, and view a red carpet photo album on FILMOCRACY, and watch the award show on YouTube.

We hope the best to all in 2021!
